I loved reading the Mrs. ‘Arris series when I was a child.
I learned life lessons as this London char woman, Ada Harris, went to Paris, New York, Parliament and Moscow on different pursuits.
My hands down favorite was Mrs. ‘Arris goes to Paris. It was then that I first fell in love with couture and Paris.
Angela Lansbury stars in a film version of the Paris adventure which earned a 80% rating from Rotten Tomatoes. I might have to watch it soon to see if the actress comes close to the vision in my mind’s eye of Ada Harris. Omar Shariff is a co-star.
These are fun, easy to read books always with a moral for young readers.
With summer around the corner, I picture a young child in the porch swing captivated by these sweet stories. At least I was!
