Excerpt

said Polly, decidedly. "I'd have two hundred, all in a row!"

"Two hundred candles!" echoed Joel, in amazement. "My whockety! what a lot!"

"Don't say such dreadful words, Joel," put in Polly, nervously, stopping to pick up her spool of basting thread that was racing away all by itself; "tisn't nice."

"Tisn't worse than to wish you'd got things you haven't," retorted Joel. "I don't believe you'd light 'em all at once," he added, incredulously.

"Yes, I would too!" replied Polly, reckessly; "two hundred of 'em, if I had a chance; all at once, so there, Joey Pepper!"

"Oh," said little Davie, drawing a long sigh. "Why, 'twould be just like heaven, Polly! but wouldn't it cost money, though!"

"I don't care," said Polly, giving a flounce in her chair, which snapped another thread; "oh dear me! I didn't mean to, mammy; well, I wouldn't care how much money it cost, we'd have as much light as we wanted, for once; so!"

This is an awesome book!
I love it! It's about five children and their widowed mother 'and how they grow'!

If I read this book as a child, I don't remember. However, I recently read it, and enjoyed it immensely. The 5 children (Pepper is their last name) are being raised by a single mom. They struggle with poverty, with each working so hard to contribute to the well-being of the family. This book ends happily, with the family discovering a wonderful suprise regarding their new friends. It is an endearing book, and I look forward to reading the entire series.

OMG... this is one of my most favourite books of all time! I'm an adult now, but I've read this probably about 30-40 times since I was a kid - a real classic!
