An (Interesting) Essay

Hi there! Today, I will be posting an essay which I wrote for my studies. I hope you enjoy it!! (Comment down below about the essay if you wish)

Penrod Book Report

Penrod is a book by Booth Tarkington. This book was a little difficult to read as it was old English, but I managed it somehow. Lots of spectacular and different things occur in this book, some of which are impossible to do in real life. Although he is a playful boy, his behavior usually gets out of hand.

One day in school, Penrod is daydreaming, when suddenly he flies out of the window. The teacher and all the students run out to see him. Flying here and there, Penrod enjoys the fun then returns back to school. He shows disrespect to the teacher when she calls him to go down. This is only one of the many troubles he caused.

Another time, he is having a haircut. The barber calls him a “little gentleman,” which Penrod dislikes. As he is heading home, somehow people started to address him as “little gentleman.” Penrod yells at them to stop, claiming he is not a “little gentleman.” But people just continue calling him so. In the end, he throws a fit and his father scolds him. Penrod plunges into a nasty temper.

On his birthday, Penrod invites his friends. They dance and play games at the party; Penrod just cannot stop dancing with one particular girl, which makes another girl jealous. This results in a fight and embarrasses Penrod’s parents greatly. But he doesn’t care.

Penrod is a very naughty boy who is full of ideas. The book captures his characters very well. It is descriptive even though it is a little hard to read. Having to be a good boy is difficult for any child, much less Penrod who is rather active.


I think I ended it a little too abrupt but.. that’s me. Thanks for reading! See ya!!!

God Bless You!
