Tarkington, Booth: Penrod and Sam (Illustrated). v2., 18 Mar 2013
PENROD AND SAM
by Booth Tarkington (1869 – 1946)
Illustrations by Gordon Grant (1875 – 1962)
and Worth Brehm (1883 – 1928)
First published 1916
This novel was first published in 1916, and is the sequel to his 1914 work, Penrod. Penrod and Sam brings us the further misadventures of that mischievous all-American boy, Penrod Schofield, and his best friend, Sam Williams, eleven-year-old boys in 1913 Midwestern America.
In our time, a century later, Penrod would probably be undergoing medical treatment for hyperactivity and Attention Deficit Disorder. Fortunately, Tarkington has recorded the wonders of untrammeled boyhood as it used to be. Full of wit and laughter for all ages.
Pen & ink sketches by Gordon Grant for the chapter heads. Full-page (water-color?) illustrations by Worth Brehm taken from a different edition, which might not be exactly kosher, am I allowed to do that????
