Mrs. Pepper, a widow, and her five children lived in a plain little brown house where she struggled to feed and clothe her lively ...brood. The family had little in the way of luxury and hardly any of the things that many of us today take for granted. But they had such fun and good times together and loved one another so dearly that when a very rich little boy discovered the warmth and happiness that flooded the little brown house he felt himself lucky to be in it. And as it turned out, his coming brought luck to the Five Little Peppers too. The adventures of this poor but loving Pepper family-Ben, Polly, Joel, Davie, and the adored youngest, Phronsie-have charmed young audiences for more than a century. Overflowing with warmth, suspense, and many delightful surprises, this classic remains as compelling as ever. read more
The first in a series of books about the Pepper family, these imaginative children's stories have delighted readers since their or...iginal publication in 1881. This first novel introduces Ben, Polly, Joel, Davie, and Phronsie, the children of their widowed Mamsie, Mrs. Pepper. While very poor, the Peppers live in a supportive little town in their beloved Little Brown House. The family faces many challenges, such as sickness and an overflowing generosity stinted by their financial straits, yet they accept and overcome many obstacles with an optimism and good-naturedness that is as surprising as it is commendable. When little Phronsie is later placed in great danger, the Peppers meet young Jasper King, who will ultimately change their fates and lead them to the unexpected conclusion of the novel. This heartwarming tale is a testament to perseverance in the face of hardship, incorruptible kindness, and the power of family love that conveys a message well worth learning to this day. read more

"The Five Little Peppers and How They Grew" has delighted readers since its original publication in 1881.

This heartwarming tale is a testament to perseverance in the face of hardship, incorruptible kindness, and the power of family love that conveys a message well worth learning to this day. "The Five Little Peppers and How They Grew" is old-fashioned (the doctor even makes house calls) but still enjoyable. Margaret Sidney was a talented author, who could make even inanimate objects, such as the stove, seem alive. The children's adventures may seem simple to today's young readers, who are used to Harry Potter and the like, but it's a refreshing change. Many have noticed the stylistic similarities between Louisa May Alcott's books and Margaret Sidney's. This is not accidental. They were approximate contemporaries, they were both New Englanders, and Ms. Sidney, a literary historian, eventually purchased Ms. Alcott's home (which had been earlier owned by Nathaniel Hawthorne) and lived there for many years. Unlike Alcott, who could be sonorously self-righteous in her writings, Ms. Sidney's books sparkle with energy. They are stories reflecting a powerful, proper New England Protestant Work Ethic, a sense of Grace, Works and Reward, but the "Five Little Peppers" have a great deal of good-natured fun at the same time. read more

A pleasant childrens story about a baby groundhog and his very first Groundhog Day Celebration
Every year, people ask Groundhog the same, boring old question. Is spring around the corner? Or are we doomed to more winter? Sure..., they care about his shadow, but what about him and his interests? He's had enough! Groundhog packs his bags and sets out for a much-needed vacation. Now the town is holding auditions to find someone to fill his spot. None of the animals seem right for the job, though. Not Elephant, not Ostrich, and most certainly not Puppy. No one has Groundhog's flair for the dramatic, but is it too late to woo him back into the spotlight? With a fresh take on a familiar event and bold, lively illustrations, this hilarious picture book will leave readers wishing it was Groundhog's Day year-round. read more

Garwood Groundhog is restless and curious. He yearns to see the world outside while he and his family normally hibernate.
