Good fortune smiled on Phoebe Brown But revolution brought her down.
At the turn of the century, in a comfortable brownstone on a tree-shaded Manhattan street, lives a young girl with a mind of her own. Phoebe's revolt is provoked by her distaste for everything to do with girls," especially curls, bows, frills, lace, ruffles, ribbons, and sashes. Her idea of a suitable outfit for herself is. her father's clothes.
The saga of this "novel child" (as Phoebe's father calls her) is elaborated in pictures that distill, with nostalgic wit, the atmosphere of Old New York.
