Poor and Proud

by Oliver Optic

I was thrilled beyond belief to find this little gem on the internet. As a child in the l940's, I was given a copy of this wonderful little book and it became the most prized book of my childhood. Somewhere along the way, it was lost , and I despaired of ever finding it again and began wondering if it really had existed. I cannot tell you what it meant to me to be able to re-read it. I have vivid memories of that poor child pulling the molasses candy and burning her fingers. I can still picture my self reading that book and crying at her plight all those many years ago.
Thank you for printing it on the internet. ( I love my computer--it has found me my childhood friend!)

As our author of the day, Vincent talks about the latest bundle from this series, tells us more about the inspiration behind the stories and reveals why he also included recipes in the books.
