Otis, James: Toby Tyler, vers 1, December 09 '07

Hi,

This book's full title is Toby Tyler or Ten Weeks With a Circus, and it's guaranteed to make anyone under the age of ten cry.

James Otis is a penname of James Otis Kaler.

According to Wikipedia, Kaler was born on March 19, 1848, in Winterport, Maine. He attend public schools during his childhood. Kaler got a job with the Boston Journal when he was in his teens. Later, he went on to work a journalist or editor for various newspapers, superintendent at schools, and a publicity man at a circus.

In 1880, under the pen name James Otis, he authored his first children’s book, Toby Tyler, a story about an orphan who runs away to join the circus. Following the book's success he went on to author numerous other children’s books.

Enjoy
