Like all of the Eleanor H. Porter books, this book about a girl who is mistaken for a boy is funny, entertaining, and will keep you reading to the very end.

尼尔森先生想给把他第一个孩子的名字取得跟他儿时玩伴亨肖先生一样,但是却生了一个女儿,也就是比利小姐。当比利小姐成为孤儿后,律师建议她亨肖先生收养他。而亨肖先生却不知道她的存在,以为比利是个男孩子。

Mr. Neilson was determined to name his first child after his boyhood chum, William Henshaw. When the baby disappointed him by being a girl, he was consoled by naming her Billy. Miss Billy, now 18, orphaned and all alone in the world, takes her lawyer’s suggestion to ask her namesake to take her in. Only one little problem – Mr. Henshaw did not know of her existence, and then mistakenly thinks that Billy is a boy!

埃莉诺·霍奇曼·波特(Eleanor Hodgeman Porter)(1868—1920)是美国著名童话作家。她出生于新罕布什尔州的一个小镇,年轻时曾是当地有名的歌手;1901年波特放弃歌唱生涯正式开始写作。1913年儿童小说《波莉安娜》问世,风靡全美,连续8次荣登畅销书榜首。波特创造出了她最为成功、也是最具影响力的小说人物:波莉安娜。波特后来还创作了一部《波莉安娜》的续集,取名为《波莉安娜长大了》,同样引起轰动。

Eleanor Emily Hodgman Porter (December 19, 1868 – May 21, 1920) was an American novelist. She was born in Littleton, New Hampshire on 19 December 1868, the daughter of Francis Fletcher Hodgman and Llewella Woolson. She became an excellent singer after studying at the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston. She married John Lyman Porter on 3 May 1892 and started writing short stories, usually set in New England, which were published in the popular magazines and newspapers of the day including Woman's Home Companion and Harper's Weekly.

From babyhood the Henshaw boys had lived in the handsome, roomy house, facing the Public Garden. It had been their father's boyhood home, as well, and he and his wife had died there, soon after Kate, the only daughter, had married. At the age of twenty- two, William Henshaw, the eldest son, had brought his bride to the house, and together they had striven to make a home for the two younger orphan boys, Cyril, twelve, and Bertram, six. But Mrs. William, after a short five years of married life, had died; and since then, the house had known almost nothing of a woman's touch or care.
