"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.

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.
