Penrod

by Booth Tarkington


Description:  Although he is young, Penrod Schofield is far from guileless. Were he found in the company of other mischievous young characters such as Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer, Penrod would not appear out of place — he would likely even have a thing or two to teach them about troublemaking! In this first of a three book series, the heart of boyhood is revealed with rare humor and sympathy in the pranks, mishaps, and triumphs of Penrod. A book for parents as well as for boys.
