Overview

GUTTA-PERCHA WILLIE IS A GREAT CHILDREN'S BOOK AND EASILY ADMIRED AND READ BY ADULTS!!
For anyone who is fond of MacDonald's better known works for children (At the Back of the North Wind, The Princess and the Goblins, The Princess and Curdie)...

The History of Gutta-Percha Willie will prove a profound delight. The book is a particularly Scottish kind of novel of education. The hero, Willie, is a lovable person who is allowed to develop and grow at his own pace by wise parents. The results of his untrammeled education are beneficial not only to Willie, but to his family and to the world at large.
This is a book not merely for children; like all great texts, The History of Gutta-Percha Willie lends itself to re-reading again and again over the years.

An Excerpt from the book:
"When he had been at school for about three weeks, the boys called him Six-fingered Jack; but his real name was Willie, for his father and mother gave it him -- not William, but Willie, after a brother of his father, who died young, and had always been called Willie. His name in full was Willie Macmichael. It was generally pronounced Macmickle, which was, by a learned anthropologist, for certain reasons about to appear in this history, supposed to have been the original form of the name. . . . One evening in winter, when he had been putting coals on his grannie's fire, she told him to take a chair beside her, as she wanted a little talk with him. He obeyed her gladly.
"Well, Willie," she said, "what would you like to be?"

Willie answered without a moment's hesitation . . ." A really good book!!
