"We mention first the Pansy Books. These lead naturally from the fact that Pansy is herself a leader. She inspires with her enthusiasm, she wins with her sympathy. Her characters are real live people, such as one meets every day. They have the trials, perplexities, joys of actual life, and Pansy brings them out of troubles such as fall to ordinary mortals in a way that helps, cheers, guides and builds up character."—Lothrop Publishing Company (1893).
