My mom fondly remembers a YA book from the fifties called “Biggity Ann” about a girl who was the oldest in a large family…she was bossy but she had to be.
However, I can’t turn up anything about it on the internet and I’m wondering if maybe she’s misremembering the title and if it rang a bell for any Dopers.
Did she grow up to be Quagmire’s mom, or something?
You must embiggen your search.
I tried several spelling variants (‘biggety’, ‘biggedy’, etc.). No luck. Sorry.
I don’t have a clue on this one, but if there’s anyone who would know, it’s my mom (who grew up in the fifties, became a teacher, and was the oldest in a large family). I’ll ask her.
There was a book published in 1946 called “The Biggety Chamelon.” Does your mom sometimes confuse little girls and reptiles?
