"My secret, I think, to all success is naturalness and sincerity. If a girl is going to truly succeed in the world she must be her own self."-Lotta Crabtree During the height of the California Gold Rush, child performers called Fairy Stars kept the miners entertained. The children would dance, sing, and act to raise spirits and money. Lotta Crabtree was the brightest of the Fairy Stars! The precocious girl won hearts across the world with her extraordinary talent for comedy and grew to be one of the wealthiest and most beloved American entertainers of the late 19th century. In this unique biography for young readers, follow Lotta's early years, her struggle to support her family, her spectacular journey to fame, and her generous contributions that are still changing lives today. Author Lois V. Harris is an award-winning storyteller. She graduated from the University of Washington with a BA in English and Creative Writing. Harris is a member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators and a writing instructor at Skagit Valley College. She has dedicated her writing career to bringing forth stories about creative people that inspire children to follow their dreams. She first encountered Lotta's story after seeing the fountain the star had donated to San Francisco.
