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

I liked it for the nostalgia factor if nothing else. The Pepper children aren't quite grown up, but they're all in their teens and Polly and Ben are in their early 20s. The writing is overblown but I think that's the style of the time it was written. There are lots of raptures and storms of tears and a broken arm apparently requires invalid status, but these are relatively minor complaints to see what's happened to "The Five Little Peppers."

Enjoyed this addition to the Peppers saga.

More of the same (see my review of Five Little Peppers and How They Grew). The two younger boys finally got a bit more personality in this book, which is why it got one more star than the others.

Yay, yay, yay!!! There were so many tense moments in this one that it was terribly hard to put it down at all. The Peppers, Fishers, Kings, and Whitneys are just as wonderful as ever, and I'm so happy about the ending and how everything worked out. Bring on the next one.

Again, it isn't as good as the original, but still a decent read.
