About this Item

New Book with some minor outside cover corner wear. Books by Father Finn. Resembling a Catholic version of Charles Dickens' stories, or even of Tom Sawyer, these books were read by hundreds of thousands of young people in the late 19th and early to mid 20th centuries. Their quaint turn-of-the-century language is part of the charm of these stories and of Fr. Finn's own brand of humor. Grade level- 5th to 8th grade and up! Not just for boys! Girls and grown-ups love them too! Like a Catholic Tom Sawyer! In this book, the new kid certainly livens things up at Henryton boarding academy! Again, Fr. Finn covers all kinds of Catholic topics and presents a great picture of the All-American Catholic Boy!. Bookseller Inventory # 000093A

About the Author:

Father Francis J. Finn was born to Irish immigrant parents at St. Louis, Missouri in 1859. He loved to read Charles Dickens works as a boy, including The Pickwick Papers, and eventually became a priest thanks to the influence of Father Charles Coppens. After graduating from St. Louis University, he became a Jesuit and was ordained a priest in 1893. He had already begun writing his debut novel Tom Playfair prior to this, as he was assigned to St. Mary s College in Kansas and dealt with unruly boys on a daily basis. He went on to write twenty-seven other books, and his novels for children were very successful. He was much loved by young people, and thousands of them gathered to honor his death in 1928.
Francis Finn also wrote That Football Game, Claude Lightfoot, Ethelred Preston, Lucky Bob, His Luckiest Year, Facing Danger, and Cupid of Champion.
