Publisher's Summary

After tumbling off the back of a wagon, Jip is brought to live at the poorhouse farm. He is content to do chores and tend animals - until the day the lunatic arrives. Putnam seems terrifying and less than human, but as the weeks pass, Jip sees the man he truly is. So, when a menacing stranger comes to town, claiming to have been sent by Jip's grieving father, Jip turns to his new friend to make sense of his past. Jip is another triumph from Katherine Paterson - and fans of her Lyddie are in for a special surprise.

Critic Reviews

"Like Paterson's Newbery-winning Bridge to Terabithia and Jacob Have I Loved, this historically accurate story is full of revelations and surprise...The taut, extremely readable narrative and its tender depictions of friendship and loyalty provide first-rate entertainment." (Publishers Weekly)"Maintains its riveting pace from the opening chapter to the final moment when the protagonist triumphs over adversity...Evokes the attitudes and social conditions of the times - 1855-1856 - in lucent prose." (The Horn Book)

Fun and interesting

This is a fun story, even for adults. Enlightening, too. Go ahead and buy it. It's worth the money.
