At once an exciting chronicle of a family's rise to fortune and its tortured downfall, it is also a fascinating portrait of the forces that shaped American society.

Booth Tarkington is the author of Magnificent Ambersons.
With great care, this new, revised edition of Penrod, has been edited seamlessly so that Booth Tarkington’s purposely florid prose – which adds to the hilarity of Penrod’s comic mishaps – is kept lovingly intact.
Penrod is particularly well-suited to young people of middle school and high school age who not only can relate to Penrod’s mischief, but can appreciate the expansive vocabulary Booth Tarkington employs to comedic effect. Lasso Books also recommends this book to adults who enjoy Mark Twain’s Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer and the wry humor found in Twain’s writings.
Lasso Books’ Revised Edition of Penrod also contains over 40 classic illustrations by master illustrator Gordon Grant.
