Review of the Kindle Edition of this nineteenth-century children's classic

This is Book 3 (in terms of events, not when the author wrote it) in the Five Little Peppers series of nineteenth century children's books. (I've provided a complete list of the Pepper books below.)

I was delighted to discover I could instantly download to my Kindle what I presume is the Project Gutenberg free version of this nineteenth century children's classic. The formatting is what I'm coming to see as typical of these

Oh my, how I loved this books as a child. They were very dear to me and are firmly entrenched into my memory strong enough to have become parts of my character. There are is a veritable plethora of life examples and lessons to be learned through these works of literature that take us back to a simpler time and place, entirely different family values and senses or morality and ethics; there is much to be learned from these simple books. Most of all, family and love, loyalty and a moral compass mu ...more
Such a delightful, fun, classic read. I have enjoyed reading about the Peppers and I am excited to watch and observe their journey as they grow up. Phronsie is a darling as ever and you can't help but fall in love with her sweet ways. Polly is in the stages of adolescence where a girl wants longs for friends and where those friends might easily sway her, but Mrs. Pepper and Papa Doctor Fisher always keep her in check. Jasper can always be depended on, and Mr. King is quite funny in his old, grum ...more

This isn't nearly as good as the original, but I guess sequels almost never are. Good old Mr. King takes Polly, Phronsie and Mamsie to Europe and the book details their goodness and their exploits in the "old country." Now that they have money, their problems aren't as absorbing.

Mr. King and Jasper escort Polly, Phronsie, their parents and friends on a grand tour of Europe before depositing Polly for a fall of music training. Their natural friendliness endears them to an earl and his son, traveling incognito, and Polly reforms the young man simply by existing. What wonderful powers. At the same time, they shake off the more socially-conscious matrons - though their daughters adore Polly and would be better people if only their mothers would allow it, just to please Poll ...more

Shelves: elem, story
In the back matter of this book there's an ad for another Sidney title, promised to be good reading "for all who love simplicity, truth, and cheerfulness."* This has all that in spades but also has this overly hearty, knowing tone, as if all readers could be expected to have gone to Switzerland and to know the old college songs. A breathless quality. Too many jollies, especially when the jollies become reactionary.

*Which I do, obviously. Especially cheerfulness.
Again, more of the same (see my revew of the first book). A couple new characters got introduced, but like the main characters, they were two-dimensional at best. Still good for people who like this sort of thing (which does include me, but I don't see myself rereading these books; once was enough).

Polly occasionally reminded me of Mandie; unfortunately, she did so by emulating some of Mandie's most annoying traits.

Kathryn and i enjoyed this story of the Peppers' European travels, esp of Holland, but we did miss stories of Joel and Davy as they stayed home at school.
