Fanny Grace lives in the small community of Famish Gut. She and her special friend, Milly King, are just beginning sixth grade. There are lots of things Fanny and Millie enjoy about living in Famish Gut, but there are other things they don't like. And, as everyone knows, if you don't like something you have to put up with it Ö or try to change it.

Reviews:
"A gently meandering story [that] captures a time and place of which most Canadian children have no knowledge, in a thoroughly entertaining way.
- Children's Book News


"Fanny will touch the hearts and minds of many. The early century setting will be appreciated by all children. It will serve as a picture of what they hear their parents and grandparents reminiscing about."
- Sister Josephine Kennedy, Roman Catholic School Board (Newfoundland)
