Dandelion Cottage by Carroll Watson Rankin, published in 1904 by Henry Holt and Company. She first wrote the story serially for her own children. Considered a regional classic in the midwest, it tells of four young girls who negotiate the use of a derelict cottage as a playhouse by pulling dandelions for the owner, prosperous Mr. Black. The Dandelion Cottage is a real cottage and is still in existence and privately owned in Marquette Michigan. If you like L.M. Montgomery you will like Ms. Rankin's book! They are in public domain now and available @ Project Gutenburg. Here are a couple interesting links about the cottage and the story. She has other children's books as well. I have 2 on my ereader. I am planning on reading Dandelion Cottage while in MI. next week!
