When Billy's father Benjamin Franklin announces that Billy and his lazy cousin James will soon have a tutor, Billy is initially dismayed. But his tutor awakens him to the power of story and books, and when Billy accompanies his father to the Leather Apron Club (which Franklin started in 1727), he decides to do more with his education and life.
Best-selling author Jane Yolen introduces readers to the Leather Apron Club. Not only was the Club the first successful lending library in the United States--it also exists to this day as the Library Company of Philadelphia! Careful readers will notice that the story cleverly incorporates famous sayings from Ben Franklin's Poor Richard's Almanack, underscoring the lasting impact of words.
Like many teenagers, the young troll Gog loves rock music. Unfortunately, he doesn’t have money to buy a ticket to see the annual concert of his favorite band, Boots and the Seven Leaguers. But where there’s a will, there’s a way, and Gog and his clever pal Pook trick the Leaguers into believing they are seasoned roadies willing to work in exchange for admission. Unfortunately, this means Gog must take his eyes off his smart-aleck little brother, Magog—and when Magog is kidnapped, the teen troll must venture into the terrible New Forest, where a whole host of terrifying nasties await, to find him.
A true delight for young readers, Jane Yolen’s Boots and the Seven Leaguers is a wonderfully imaginative and fantastically funny contemporary fairy tale from one of the most acclaimed authors in the fantasy field.
