Samuel Griswold Goodrich was an American publisher and author of children’s books under the pseudonym of Peter Parley. Largely self-educated he was also a bookseller and publisher at Hartford and later in Boston. In 1828 he published for 15 years an illustrated annual, the Token, to which he was a frequent contributor both in prose and verse. The Token contained some of the earliest work of Nathaniel Hawthorne and Henry W. Longfellow. Goodrich published Peter Parley’s Magazine (1832–44) and then merged it into his Merry’s Museum, founded in 1841 and for a time edited by Louisa May Alcott.  This little book was meant for the education of school children and includes various tales, sketches and anecdotes of the main character’s life. The book is  written in the English languge of that period. Each chapter has numerous questions intended for the the reader to quiz themselves to see if they gathered the pertinent information. Each of you can find something interesting for yourself. The life of  Benjamin Franklin will inspire everyone. Enjoy the reading...
