This was, in effect, a sequel to Penrod. This despite the fact that Penrod turned 12 at the end of the previous book and was "nearly 12" in this book. Whatever, it's the same cast of 11-year-old boys doing the kinds of inventive, and often naughty, things that 11-year-old boys do. Rather a fun read. ( )

79. Penrod and Sam, by Booth Tarkington (read in 1940 or 1941) I read this because Penrod was not available. I have regretted that I have never read Penrod. ( )

The further adventures of Penrod and his neighbor Sam. These episodic stories of boyhood adventures in turn-of-the-century Indianapolis (although the city is never identified) are rollicking and hilarious. The first story, in which they hide a friend in the house and he escapes in a unique way, is marvelous. ( )
