This is indeed a good book for children and teenagers. Although the children in the book were poor, they were filial (their mum was dead) and they gathered to think of ways to help their father. This was appreciated by me because they would not think that was a shame for them. One of the children gave his poems to the manager of the newspaper man. He gave him a small amount of money and the children were delighted, soon his poems were in the newspaper. Since then, the chilren thought of ways to earn money to help the family...Finally they met their Indian uncle and their lives improved, they lived together with their uncle happily ever after.Was this review helpful?
