The five little Peppers are an adorable family of children growing up in a small town and cared for by their widowed mother. She is so poor that the pittance she earns as the town seamstress fails to support or even sustain the family.

The children are happy despite privation, and the smallest pleasures cause delight and merriment in the little house. Everything happens to this brood while mother is away sewing, and no matter how dangerous the situation, they come out of it safe and smiling.

    " Loved this as a child of 6 or 7. It may seem simplistic now, but as a child it was more than complicated enough. Some people want to bash it for the tone it's written in, but that makes about as much sense as bashing the dialogue in a 50's gangster movie for sounding dated. It was appropriate for it's time. (Written in 1881) "
