about

Penrod
by Booth Tarkington
published in 1914
Category: Fiction

Penrod Schofield is an eleven-year-old boy living in middle America. He's been roped into the school play as the young Sir Lancelot, a role that he does not want to play. Instead of slogging through it, he and his friends make mischief and thus are dubbed the 'bad boys.' They lie, cheat, and steal to get what they want. When Penrod's sister's dress is found muddied in the doghouse, he naturally is blamed for it. Penrod comes into situations that are too complicated for his young mind to understand, and yet, he manages to somehow make sense of it all. He learns, despite himself, what it means to be human.

This is a picture of a boy's heart, full of the lovable, humorous, tragic things which are locked secrets to most older folks. It is a finished, exquisite work.
