"Strawberry Girl" is a Newbery medal winning novel written and illustrated by Lois Lenski. It was first published in 1945.

Set in the U.S. state of Florida in the early 20th century, the story deals with two families, the Boyers and the Slaters. The Boyers move to Florida to raise strawberries. They come into conflict with their new neighbors, the Slaters, who raise cattle but let their animals roam loose. The feud between the two families heightens through the book, but they reconcile by the end of the novel. The two main characters are Birdie Boyer, the "Strawberry Girl" of the book's title, and Shoestring Slater, whose pony ruins the Boyers' strawberries.
