  • Jasper the Firestarter and The Story Girl saves the day!

    9.5
    Our first meeting of Jasper Dale takes place in this episode. Upon first watching this it never crossed my mind that his character would become a very important one. I mean could you really see such a shy, clumsy but well-meaning man become the love interest of our sweet Aunt Olivia? I sure didn't. Also our first Jasper related fire incident occurs in this episode as well. One of many throughout the series. I sometimes wonder why the future Avonlea fire department didn't give Jasper his very own fireman! Anyway, we learn that Sara is a very eloquent story teller of The Little Match girl similarities between Sara and the author of the stories that inspired the series L.M. Montgomery begins. Not to mention the name of Jasper's future son is Monty. Sara manages to persuade a wealthy man to donate to the school with her story. She gets the nick name The Story Girl.moreless
