An early Christmas present from Mom arrived at the table today along with the Turkey.
‘The Boy Who Fell Off the Mayflower or John Howlands Good Fortune, by P.J. Lynch.
The illustrations in the book are absolutely amazing and I am looking forward to reading the whole story. It is so much fun to read a story about one of your family members.
My grandmother used to tell me about this boy when I was young. I am sure it was told once or twice at the Thanksgiving Table bringing back great memories of Thanksgiving on the Cape.
Your local book store should be able to order it for you and here is a link to the publishers page; http://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/books/258436/the-boy-who-fell-off-the-mayflower-or-john-howlands-good-fortune-by-p-j-lynch/9780763665845/
