The Old Tobacco Shop

William Bowen (1877 - 1937)

A True Account of What Befell a Little Boy in Search of Adventure. Life is hard for a little boy who can't even say his own name, so he has to make his own luck where he finds it, even if Aunt Amanda is always chastising him for having his hands in his pockets in this winner of the 1922 Newberry Award for children's literature. Today's parents should be aware the adventure is a tobacco-induced dream.
