(4.4 stars; 7 reviews)

In this volume, which follows the author's popular book "Tom Playfair", a new boy is just arriving at St. Maure's boarding school. Percy Wynn has grown up as the only boy in a family of 10 girls. He has never played with boys before, and no one looking at him for a moment would hesitate to set him down as "Mamma's darling". Tom and his friends befriend Percy, and attempt to repair his formal manners, and "make a boy of him". (Summary by Maria Therese) (6 hr 26 min)

a good book. The gentleman who reads chapter 12, will you please come forward? I would like to know your name so I can see if you've read more books. If you haven't read more, I would like to strongly urge you to do so. All readers were great, but you were the best!

The story is good. I love the reader. She reminds me of my second grade teacher, who we thought of as the singing nun! She has an expressive voice and makes the characters come alive.

Starts really funny, turns campy and very Catholic moralizing. Whole family laughing aloud in the car for the first bit. But 10 yr old son enjoyed the whole book.
