Oh my goodness, these books are very entertaining Penrod is a young boy with quite the active imagination which gets himself and his friends into trouble quite frequently Very funny This is one of the most hilarious books we ever read as a family, but you do have to watch out for some ignorant racist comments.
Ü Penrod and Sam ☆ This book was given to me by my Grandpa years ago, and it was one of his favorites I appreciate it so much now, being the mom of three boys It s laugh out loud funny in parts Definitely written for another time, some things about little boys never change though

my father s copy must reread this summer.
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.
Great book Very funny and entertaining It s sorta like Huck Finn except all the adventure takes place near the house Booth T has a rather dry and wry sense of humor, and I laughed out loud quite a bit His descriptions of the characters emotions and reactions are priceless
