The premise of the book is fairly simple. It is narrated from the view of a boy named Bev King looking back on his childhood. Bev and his brother Felix are sent to live with their Aunt Janet and Uncle Alec on Prince Edward Island while their father travels for business. There they become acquainted with their cousins Felicity, Dan, Cecily, and Sara Stanley aka the Story Girl, as well as befriending Sara Ray a neighbor and Peter the hired boy. It covers many domestic adventures and dramas through school, church, neighbors, and through it all The Story Girl weaves tales to entertain and relate to every life event. Imagination and a hint of magic touches things, just as it did with Anne of Green Gables. But most of all it deals with family and friendship, and how the group grows close through it all.
