Continues the story of the Five Little Peppers in their newly prosperous life. If you enjoyed the first book, this and the sequels will continue to charm. If you thought Polly Pepper, her siblings and their Mamsie were too thoroughly good to be true, don't read farther into the series because they just keep on.

Despite the dates attached to the books, the stories seem to go in this order:

The Five Little Peppers and How They Grew, 1881

The Adventures of Joel Pepper, 1900

The Five Little Peppers at School, 1903

The Five Little Peppers and their Friends, 1904

The Five Little Peppers Midway, 1890

The Five Little Peppers Abroad, 1902

The Five Little Peppers Grown Up, 1892
