I'm giving this five stars for the illustrations. The words are sweet, but I almost felt that the illustrations told the entire story just as well. Lentil is the most adorable boy and the story is nostalgic and fun and touching--poor Lentil cannot sing well, or whistle, but he loves music... so he saves his money to buy a harmonica; and his harmonica playing soon saves the day! This is from the early 1940s but you could totally picture Opie Taylor from "Andy Griffith" reading this and getting inspired to take up the harmonica like Lentil and parade through Mayberry with his tunes! ;->

Yes, I do! I'm planning to buy a copy someday or other, so when I do I'll let you guys borrow it.
