Read in The Stephen Crane Megapack: 94 Classic Works by the Author of The Red Badge of Courage.

A poor child from the wrong side of the tracks is wandering through a more affluent neighborhood. He sees another child playing with a toy. He decides he wants said toy.

This short story is symbolic of class and socioeconomic status. It's still relevant over one hundred years after it was originally published.
