Editorial Reviews

With characters like Farmer Meanwell, Farmer Graspall, and Sir Thomas Grip, "Goody Two Shoes" unabashedly offers the listener a lesson in English morality, circa 1765. Originally published anonymously, this children’s story has endured as a variation on the Cinderella tale.
Margery is a poor farm girl who becomes orphaned and must walk with only one shoe. Her pure, good heart, however, compels a rich man to give her another pair, and eventually compels another rich man to marry her. Performed in a playful, grandmotherly tone by Cindy Hardin Killavey, "Goody Two Shoes" is an entertaining story that reflects a very specific belief about the rewards of moral behavior.

Publisher's Summary

"Goody Two Shoes", published by an anonymous author in 1765, has long been one of the most popular children's stories ever written. It is the kind of story your grandmother might have told, and its message of optimism, bravery, and the rewards of honesty are giving it new popularity today.In recent years, the phrase "a goody two shoes" has developed a negative connotation, implying that the virtuousness of a such a person is insincere. This was certainly not the case in the original story. It is a charming tale of good rewarded and evil punished - a classic "happily every after" story.

Old fashioned and wonderful

This is a wonderful, "old-fashioned values" story. A breath of fresh air
from today's cynicism. Mys kids loved it!

Fun childhood story

Again, this is one of those stories that was read to me as a child, to have it read to me again now I'm old was fun. There is certainly no intellectural depth, just plain good.
