Peck's Bad Boy and his Pa

George W. Peck

Read May-June 2003

A collection of stories from the 1880s labeled as humorous.  All the stories involve the Bad Boy playing juvenile pranks on his father.  It's not particularly funny.  The only mildly surprising element of the stories (certainly not the plot-lines) was the fairly risque nature of some of them (for instance, the Bad Boy sets up his father to cheat on his mother).
