"It didn't take you long to learn," complimented Bess, while Isabel said:

"Paul--er--is he--"

"Well, I don't remember a thing he said," confessed Elizabeth; "but Paul--who could forget Paul? Didn't he have nice teeth?"

There are several more books in this series, many of them available right here.
