Lisa and Lottie by Erich Kastner

Lisa and Lottie by Erich Kastner was the basis for the movie The Parent Trap. Lisa and Lottie are 9-year-old twins separated as babies when their parents got divorced. They did not know they had a twin sister until they meet by chance at summer camp. The girls make a plan to switch places in the hopes that when their parents meet again they will re-fall in love and get re-married.

I first read Lisa and Lottie when I was 8 or 9. I loved it then and I still love it today, almost 30 years later. The story is gentle and sweet and turns out exactly how you want it to. I highly recommend this book to everyone, young and old!
