On Moses: "I got so tired of Moses walking forty years and never getting to where he was going. I sure would have bought myself a mule." On the library: "In the library there are signs. Silence. Mrs. Simons [the librarian] must not know they are there. She talks the whole long day." These naively trouncing concepts of school, church etiquette, and everlasting life are both a child's mischievous collection of impressions and an adult's hilarious comeuppance.
These naively trouncing concepts of school, church ettiquette and everlasting life are both a child's collection of impressions and an adult's hilarious come-uppance. This is a spicy slice of small-town Americana in the early 1900s.

Being an Episcopalian, this book really hit home. It is a wonderful view of life through a child's eye in the early part of the century, but can still be understood today. I got my first copy 35 years ago and pull it out over and over again to enjoy.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
