Newton Booth Tarkington (July 29, 1869 – May 19, 1946) was an American novelist and dramatist best known for his novels The Magnificent Ambersons and Alice Adams. He is one of only three novelists to win the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction more than once, along with William Faulkner and John Updike. Although he is little read now, in the 1910s and 1920s he was considered America's greatest living author. Several of his stories were adapted to film.

Penrod and Sam was a popular novel written by Booth Tarkington. Tarkington was considered one of the greatest authors in America

Penrod and Sam was a popular novel written by Booth Tarkington. Tarkington was considered one of the greatest authors in America. However, once I started into the book, I wondered how in the world he afforded such a title! Penrod and Sam chronicles the adventures of two mischievous little boys. In my opinion a better name would have been Brat and Accomplice as they enact all sorts of atrocities towards others.

Penrod and Sam, written by Booth Tarkington, was full of delightful antics of two young boys who were mischievous and caused brief havoc throughout the book. My 12 year old son read it and described it as both entertaining and amusing to read. The book follows two young boys through their daily lives describing the trouble that young boys can find. The book itself was easy to read and understand although there were several "old English" words that needed to be defined or read in the context of the sentence to find the meaning.

I'm originally a Hoosier and I'd never read any Booth Tarkington. I'm glad that I finally did. There's a bit of Twain in here with plenty of clever turns of phrase and wry observation. It's the world through the eyes of a mischevious boy, one who causes problems for himself and others, is aware that he's doing it, but seems not quite able to get it right while never getting it terribly wrong. Oh, and he has a love interest.

Penrod and Sam, written by Booth Tarkington, was full of delightful antics of two young boys who were mischievous and caused brief havoc throughout the book. My 12 year old son read it and described it as both entertaining and amusing to read. The book follows two young boys through their daily lives describing the trouble that young boys can find.

The book itself was easy to read and understand although there were several "old English" words that needed to be defined or read in the context of the sentence to find the meaning. The chapters are designed so that it is easy to stop at the end of a chapter and resume at another time since each chapter is read as a different event.

Penrod was a very mischievous boy who got himself into a series of troubles during his first 12 years. A few incidents (such as the apothecary incident) seemed hard to believe in addition to the fact that he didn’t get punished to suit the circumstances. Some sentences were extremely long. The tale was told in flowery style so that much would go over the head of an elementary student. I did not appreciate the racist and sacrilegious phrases. My favorite part was the birthday party which was quite comical.

Written in 1914, the narration of an 11 year old boy's antics could have been read by Daniel Stern of Wonder Years or Jean Shepherd of A Christmas Story. Except for some cringe worthy moments of racial stereotypes and language, it is an enjoyable read.

Tarkington is a vastly under-rated writer even though he won the Pulitzer prize for literature in 1921. He writes with great acuity and humor about small town life in turn of the century America, specifically Indiana. Some of his portraits of African Americans might be viewed by some as racist and politically incorrect, but in fact he writes about them with great warmth and sympathy--it is some of his white characters who are racist--not him. Or,in the case of youngsters, just naive.

The Penrod books I think were marketed to the young adult crowd, but late-middle-aged me found them charming and more than occasionally hilarious. Also check out The Magnificent Ambersons, Alice Adams. and Seventeen. An incredibly detailed and vivid picture of a forgotten world.

Penrod, a 12 year old boy, circa 1910, is a cross between Matrk Twain's Tom Sawyer and James T. Farrell's Studs Lonigan. It took me a few pages to adjust to Booth Tarkington's writing method, but then I really began to enjoy the novel. Penrod is a stereotypical midwesterner lad who is bumbling his way towards his teenage years and incurring the wrath of his parents and teachers. Like most American youngsters he must deal with bullies, blly aches, long and hot summer afternoons with nothing to do, people of different races, crushes, homework and adults who just don't understand him. Give it a chance! However, the book is quite different from the 1930's Hollywood version.

This was one of the first books that I read... my mother had bought it as part of the children's classics of the month series, which arrived at our home by mail back in the day. When I first read the book, I found the archaic slang of the American children depicted as intriguing and it was my first realization that, slang apart, American boys before World War I were quite similar to the American pre-adolescents whom I knew in the early 1960s. The scenario changed, but the issues were the same: acceptance, meaning, adventure, desire to build, peer pressure, desire to prove oneself...

So, the main characters became favorite people to me, both Penrod (hero of earlier books) and Sam (yes, I liked the modest and bumbling Sam much more than I did the arrogant but ever-popular Penrod).

Now, I do not know how this book would be accepted by American pre-adolescents today, nearly 100 years after its first publication... It did stand the test of time for the first 50 years, I think (or I certainly thought so as an 11-year-old reading this in 1961). I'd love to see what kids today think of it.
These books were at one time very familiar reading, but they have lapsed into obscurity--wrongfully so! Tarkington, who died in 1946, was a GOOD writer. Penrod Schofield makes Tom Sawyer look like an angel. I laughed in both books until I cried, and I'm not kidding. The author's vivid way with words makes it even funnier. STRONGLY recommended, if you need some chuckles. The books are set around 1910 in smallish-town Indiana.
