Yearling (1987)


1890. The Five Little Peppers are the fictional creations of Harriett Mulford Stone Lothrop, who wrote about the beloved Pepper family under the pseudonym Margaret Sidney. Her writing career began when she sent her short stories to Wide Awake, a children's magazine published by Daniel Lothrop. Eventually two stories-Polly Pepper's Chicken Pie and Phronsie Pepper's New Shoes-caught the special attention of the editor, who wanted more Pepper stories. The author later married the publisher. The Five Little Peppers Midway is the second of twelve books about the cheerful Pepper clan and in this story even their snooty cousin's coming to stay can't ruin the Pepper children's joy in their mother's wedding.

The Peppers are back for more exuberance and family affection. It's something of a letdown after the first one, as the challenges the family faces seem insignificant compared to those in the first book.

If you liked the previous book, "Five little Peppers and How the Grew" you will like this one :)

What utter sentimental drivel.
