Changes and Added Transitions[]

  • Most of Kit's newspapers, while still typed in typewriter-simulating font, are not framed with or include illustrations. The Thanksgiving edition of The Hard Times News is printed as it was, but in black and white.
  • Kit Learns a Lesson, Chapter One: Messages (now Chapter Five) has a transitional paragraph stating that by the time Kit started school, three boarders had moved in--Mr. Peck, Miss Hart, and Miss Finney--and their pay for rooms and meals had helped the family, a good change. But the new boarders--along with Louise Howard and Stirling Howard--make the house feel much too crowded, and Kit's list of daily chores is longer because of more people there and it's a almost a relief to head to school every morning. It mentions that it's a rainy and cold November morning and that Kit is cold and doesn't want to get up, burrowing in the covers before Charlie speaks and the original text follows.
  • Kit's Surprise, Chapter One: Rickrack (now Chapter Nine) has transitional paragraphs about how the Kittredge house seems more cheerful and the home Kit remembered before Dad lost his job; the house is still crowded with boarders but they are more like friends now. Thanksgiving is a happy lively day of chatter and laughter--but November becomes December and Dad still has not found a job.
