Lizzie Dripping wants only to please. Around her there is a tirade from irate adults -- her mother, Aunt Blodwyn and even a witch who seems capable only of nagging when Lizzie goes to her for help. Her dad's absent-minded kindness only adds to Lizzie's frustration and the frustration of the reader. Lizzie is a victim of every circumstance and as such the reader yearns to solve her problems for her. Each chapter is an amusing but exasperating tale of Lizzie's attempts to please and the displeasure that results. Lizzie first appeared in 1973 but her character is a timeless one and children of any age will continue to enjoy her escapades for a long time to come.
