They live in a trailer (caravan -- in England) and each one has certain responsibilities. Temperamentally, they are pretty much at odds, and the story revolves around their adventures and the  gradual process of "getting on with themselves” great as a family read aloud for all ages or for 10+ “here is a photo of this book: https://www.fantasticfiction.com/y/e-h-young/caravan-island.htm Simon by Rosemary Sutcliff hb ec $5… It had never seemed of much importance during their boyhood that Simon Carey was for Parliament and his friend Amias Hannaford a Royalist. But when the (English)  Civil War between the two parties broke out, and two years later they were old enough to take part in it, they found themselves fighting for different sides.
      This story tells of the last stages of the Civil War waged in the West Country; and the account of the part played by Simon in the fighting makes exciting reading. Several times in the course of it he encounters Amias ; and these meetings leave him torn by conflicting loyalties. Finally the day comes when he is forced to put the strength of the friendship to the test, weighing it against his loyalty to the Parliamentarian cause.
      Rosemary Sutcliffe has written a compelling and unbiased story of the troubled times of the civil war, describing vividly and accurately the final campaign in the west and sharing the life and thoughts and feelings of some of the people who became involved in it.
      "Here is an author who writes with great distinction...Simon is a book that I recommend with all my heart" - Noel Streatfield…. Rosemary Sutcliff had a brilliant knack of writing adventure stories set in historical periods and making them come alive. Beautifully written, and heart-breakingly poignant. 10+ or great read aloud Five Little Peppers and How They Grew by Margaret Sidney pb gc $3… "The Five Little Peppers" are Ben, Polly, Joel, Davie, and Phronsie. Their father died when Phronsie was a baby and Mrs Pepper struggles to earn enough money to support the family. Despite their poverty, they are a loving family, full of spirit and adventure. Ben and Polly do what they can to support the family, but a bout with measles threatens the wellbeing of the entire Pepper clan, especially Joel and Polly. The family has other adventures and befriend Jasper King during one of them. This friendship will enrich their lives in ways they never thought would be possible. Five Little Peppers and How They Grew is a simple children's story which encourages hard work, kindness, and generosity among even the littlest of children. These characteristics are rewarded in an almost rags to riches fashion. Margaret Sidney was a talented author, who could make even inanimate objects, such as the stove, seem alive. 10+ great read aloud for the whole family Bearing The Saint by Donna Farley pb *as New* $14… Edmund is just an ordinary fisherman's son from the island of Lindisfarne, whose one great talent and joy is running as a messenger for his bishop. But when Viking invaders threaten the holy island and its great treasure, the relics of St. Cuthbert, Edmund's life changes forever. Along with his whole village, he must accompany their beloved saint on a perilous pilgrimage that will carry him across England, through adventure, heartbreak, miraculous deliverance, and budding love, all the way to manhood. Bearing the Saint brings to life the late ninth century in Northumbria, a turbulent period of invasion and conquest that concluded with an uneasy peace between Saxon and Dane. This gripping story, infused with the holy breath of St. Cuthbert, will hold readers of all ages spellbound. 10+ or great read aloud Becoming Laura Ingalls Wilder : The Woman Behind The Legend by John E. Miller pb *as new* $18…PENDING Although generations of readers of the Little House books are familiar with Laura Ingalls Wilder’s early life up through her first years of marriage to Almanzo Wilder, few know about her adult years. Going beyond previous studies, Becoming Laura Ingalls Wilder focuses upon Wilder’s years in Missouri from 1894 to 1957. Utilizing her unpublished autobiography, letters, newspaper stories, and other documentary evidence, John E. Miller fills the gaps in Wilder’s autobiographical novels and describes her sixty-three years of living in Mansfield, Missouri. As a result, the process of personal development that culminated in Wilder’s writing of the novels that secured her reputation as one of America’s most popular children’s authors becomes evident. Unlike the other "Laura" biographies, this one has the most insightful historical contexts. The historical context spans all of Laura's life from her earliest days in Pepin Wisconsin, to her life in Kansas, Walnut Grove, Burr Oak, De Smet, Missouri and everywhere in between. The book tells of the people and events surrounding Laura particularly within the location she was at the time, and in turn gives insight into how this shaped Laura's life experiences. There are also many relevant facts in this book such as: the fact that Laura was a loan officer for a Missouri bank, she once ran for political office, she died the year that a satellite first went into space, etc. I would not pass over this Laura Ingalls book as the narrative is fine throughout and detailed. It feels like a captivating history book. 12+ Benjamin Franklin : Young Printer by Augusta Stevenson pb *as new* $8…PENDING… One of the most popular series ever published for young American's, these classics have been praised alike by parents, teachers, and librarians. With these lively, inspiring, fictionalized biographies - easily read by children of eight and up - today's youngster is swept into history. This story helps us to understand Benjamin Franklin's hunger for knowledge. He wanted to know how and why things happen. He wanted to be proficient in as many lines of work as he could and did not want to be tied down to one occupation. As an apprentice printer, he found that he could help others learn through his writing. He used his experiences of his youth to become an author, scientist, inventor, statesman, and patriot. Nini by Nance Donkin pb gc $3… "Nance Donkin is best known as a writer of historical fiction for children.

Donkin was President of the Victorian Branch of the Children's Book Council of Australia from 1968 to 1976." Other themes to emerge in Donkin’s writing were the experiences of Greek migrants and the destruction of the environment. Donkin published several books in the 1970s and 1980s focusing on the lives
      of Greek children, both as migrants in Australia and as returned emigrants in Greece. Nini is a portrayal of Greek children establishing themselves within their community!

Colors of things are different too. some how he has to survive in this world, as he is learning he is also growing in many ways. Read this book to find out how he survives in this wilderness. Just like all of Gary Paulsen’s books this is a great story and you will be engaged and unable to put it down from beginning to end. 12+ Call Me Francis Tucket by Gary Paulsen hb wdj ec $5… Alone. Francis Tucket now feels more confident that he can handle almost anything. A year ago, on the wagon train, he was kidnapped from his family by a Pawnee hunting party. Then he escaped with the help of the mountain man, Mr. Grimes. Now that he and Mr. Grimes have parted ways, Francis is heading west on his Indian pony, crossing the endless prairie, trying to find his family.
      After a year with Mr. Grimes, Francis has learned to live by the harsh code of the wilderness. He can cause a stampede, survive his own mistakes, and face up to desperadoes.
