Christmas Holidays at Merryvale: The Merryvale Boys


Produced by Suzanne Shell, Emmy and the Online Distributed Proofreading Team at THE MERRYVALE BOYS By ALICE HALE BURNETT * * * * * Six real stories for small boys, each complete in itself, telling about the many interesting doings of "Toad" and "Chuck" Brown, and their friends, "Fat," "Reddy" and others. The books are written so the boy may read and understand them and the action faithfully portrays boy life in a small town. * * * * * =CIRCUS DAY AT MERRYVALE= "Toad" and "Reddy," by good fortune, each earn two tickets to the circus, although they find watering elephants a harder task than it at first seemed. A jolly party of boys visit the circus. =FATHER BROWN'S INDIAN TALE= Dad's story is followed by an unexpected visitor who at first startles then interests all of the little party gathered around the fireside. =THE PICNIC AT MERRYVALE= Did you ever go to a picnic in a large farm wagon, filled with boys and girls? Then did you catch a fine lot of trout and broil them before a camp-fire? "Toad" and "Reddy" did these very things and had a day long to be remembered. =CHRISTMAS HOLIDAYS IN MERRYVALE= Daddy Williams' Toy Shop is the center of interest to "Toad" and his friends long before Christmas arrives. They plan a surprise that brings joy to a poor family. The boys erect snow forts and the two sides have a battle royal. =MERRYVALE BOYS ON THE FARM= "Toad's" grandmother invites him and "Reddy" to spend a month in the country. Their experiences at Sunnyside farm, with its horses, cows, pigs and chickens, are most entertainingly told, and they have the time of their lives boating, swimming and fishing in the creek. =HALLOWE'EN AT MERRYVALE= For many days the boys had been looking forward to the party to be held at Toad Brown's house, but the evening finally arrived and a number of new games were played, although a few things happened which were not on the program.
