The five little Peppers are a poor family who live in a little brown house. There is sturdy Ben who is the head of the family, Polly, the kind oldest daughter who makes things nice for everyone, next comes Joel and Davie, and last of all is Phronsie, the little darling of the family. Mrs. Pepper, their mother, tries to provide for her children and although they lack luxuries they are rich in love. Their lives change forever when they meet Jasper King and his father. A very delightful book!
