    Another Horatio Alger book with the usual theme: a young boy of the streets “rises” in the world through scrupulous honesty and hard work. He and a friend work together to prevent a robbery, but then they have to elude the would-be thieves, which gets to be really exciting. I thoroughly enjoyed this one!

    This is a wonderful book by Horatio Alger Jr. It tells the stories of many people in New York city. Some of the people succeeded and some failed. Read the book and find out for yourself.

    Slow and Sure is the sequel to Paul the Peddler. I love how the title is completely at odds with what actually happens in the book - through the usual series of Alger-ish (Algerian?) contrived coincidences, Paul very quickly rises from itinerant street-boy to sidewalk peddler to merchant with his own storefront. Oh, sorry about the spoiler. But it's Alger, after all! Slow and Sure is the sequel to Paul the Peddler.
