This is a cute story about an orphan boy that strikes out on his own with not much more than a dictionary for company. Jack tries out several trades before he realizes that his charm and way with words is what he is meant to be using. Thus, he becomes a boy who sells and trades notions, ideas, opinions and the like. The word-play and tones of independence and being true to yourself made this book for me.
