Penrod and Sam

by JuneB on Apr 16, 2009

I recently bought Penrod and Sam-- as well as Penrod-- for my 12-year-old grandson's birthday, and for my 10-year-old great-grandson, who is a precocious reader. Both are reading through the books with a parent. They are finding the books as hilarious as I did when I first got in trouble (as a high school freshman in 1940,) for laughing out loud in study hall at the adventures of the hapless Penrod. I read the books again this February, and they are still funny--even if they are nearly a hundred years old! The words are too hard for the twelve-year-old, who is an average reader, but ok for the ten-year-old, who read all the Harry Potter books wnen he was in third grade.
