The Five Little Peppers and How They Grew
The Five Little Peppers and How They Grew
Adapted by William Glennon. Based on the novel by Margaret Sidney.

Cast: 4m., 5w. From Margaret Sidney's ever-popular novel, William Glennon has fashioned a truly funny and heartwarming entertainment for the whole family. What can the future hold for a loving widowed mom, struggling against poverty to raise a moral family with all the proper values? With his well-known deft touches, Glennon has clearly delineated each character, providing real characters and really actable roles for the entire cast. Young and old alike will find Mrs. Pepper and her lively brood of five mischievous children completely irresistible, as they roll up their sleeves and tackle the future together. All the familiar incidents are artfully dramatized. Besides the engaging Peppers you'll meet the Peppers' neighbor, everyone's favorite Granny, a living newspaper, counselor and baker of good things. From the city come two unexpected visitors, Mr. King and his son Jasper. All combine to push the action forward through unexpected twists and turns—including a laugh-out-loud party scene—to a completely satisfying conclusion. The message here is just as true and perhaps even more relevant today than it was 100 years ago. One int. set.
