"It is a great thing to start life with a small number of really good books."

by Claire Huchet Bishop is a good book about a boy who receives a box of pancakes from some American soldiers. Charles wants to make pancakes for his mother and little sister on Mardi Gras, but the instructions are English, not French. When you read this exciting book you will find how the directions were translated for Charles, and the surprise that Charles and his family receive on Mardi Gras. I really enjoyed this book.
