Rising To The Top
“There’s two things that always come to the top; one’s merit – the other’s scum. Which of them is to rise first, I can’t tell, but neither will lie at the bottom long.”
As you read this story, you’ll want to stand up for the honor of poor victimized Bob, but in the end you’ll see that in the midst of darkness the light shines brightest! A fine story of honesty, suspicion, and the victory of truthfulness every time.
Besides Rising to the Top, other stories by Lamplighter author Mary Ropes include:
- Mary Jones and Her Bible
- My Golden Ship
- My Vanished Note
- Karl Jansen’s Find
- What Happened to Tad?
About the Lamplighter Rare Collector’s Series
Lamplighter stories are much more than good and wholesome reading for the family. The inspiring role models found in Lamplighter books show a child that outward compliance alone will not carry a child through the stresses and disappointments soon to be faced in adolescence and adulthood, nor are they a substitute for faith in Christ.

Though life is often not easy, we can be confident that each disappointment and trial is designed by a loving God for our good.
Lamplighter books are carefully designed to draw children back to the Bible, to ensure that each story reflects the character of God.

But the other unique feature of a Lamplighter book, in contrast to other publications of the same title, is that the Lamplighter editions have been enhanced with helpful footnotes and woven with threads of Biblical truths that will be etched into an awakened moral conscience.
