Fortune's Magic Farm by Suzanne Selfors

Isabelle lives in a town where it always rains. She has never seen the sun. She checks for slugs every time she comes in the house. Since she is an orphan she works long days at the local factory putting labels on umbrellas. When her adopted grandmother dies, her landlady throws her out for having slugs and moss in her room and she is threatened with arrest for stealing an empty pickle jar, Isabelle decides it's time to move on. Should she run off alone, or should she take the offer of a stranger who claims he wants to help. Recommended for grades 4 and up. Check availability
