Overview

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.

Meet the Author


Margaret Sidney (1844–1924) is the pseudonym of American author Harriett Mulford Stone. Born in New Haven, Connecticut, her family often traveled around rural New England, which provided material and inspiration for the young and creative Harriet's future stories and characters.Sidney started her career writing short stories, the first being "Polly Pepper's Chicken Pie," which she submitted to the Boston children's magazine Wide Awake. The story was very popular, and readers asked for more, so the magazine's editor asked Sidney to do a twelve-part series on the Peppers. Sidney was now a household name, and her first novel, The Five Little Peppers and How They Grew, was an instant success. The book's popularity led Sidney to write six sequels: The Five Little Peppers Midway, The Five Little Peppers Grown Up, The Stories Polly Pepper Told, The Five Little Peppers Abroad, The Five Little Peppers and Their Friends, and The Five Little Peppers in the Little Brown House.In addition to her children's books, Sidney wrote poetry, fiction, and nonfiction for adults, including Old Concord: Her Highways and Byways and The Wayside: Home of Authors. Many of her articles were published in such magazines and newspapers as the Practical Housekeeper and the Christian Union. Coming soon...
