The Village Hero
Saucy and cheeky describes Andy, the London orphan boy who is celebrating his freedom! Finished with school, he’s determined to become a policeman, “’cause you’re the boss o’ everybody, and nobody can boss you!” The city boy moves to a country cottage with his new friend, where he proves to be a hard worker and becomes John’s “’andy man.” Being headstrong, Andy learns many lessons about having a humble heart. And though he lacks a filter for his tongue, loyal and honest Andy will surely win your heart!
For the author of Teddy’s Button and Jill’s Red Bag, Andy, the Village Hero, is custom-made for the entertaining writing style of Amy Le Feuvre.
From Jack Snavely of Castle Rock, Colorado on
This was another of Amy Le Feuvre books that I really liked. The book could also have been titled, “The ‘Andyman”. Very touching. Have you ever seen a little boy and thought this boy is going to do something great. This is Andy. A born leader and a devoted servant. Since he is a very “saucy” city boy in the country, he is often misjudged by the country folk where he lives. However, he backs up his talk with action. We could all learn a lesson from Andy about having a positive attitude and a servant’s heart.
Well written, keeps your interest, moves along quickly, entertaining, and illustrates a good moral code while being real about the struggles of a young boy as he is growing and learning.
