Suitable for ages:

Trinka Hakes Noble is a master story teller and this book is a good sample of her talents. This story is so touching that you may cry when you read it to your children.

It tells a loveable story about a family who live in poverty but who have the attitude to make the most of it. They have ingenuity, dignity, self sacrifice and love. That makes them richer than the wealthy people in their town.

The illustrations that accompany the story are also great.

A very gentle book.
