-ABOUT THIS ITEM--
A charming story about an Orphan Girl of 15, called Lovey Mary, who is put in charge of another ward's baby, Tommy, when she is thirteen. The "wicked girl" who is Tommy's mother comes back two years later to claim him and this is where Lovey Mary and Tommy's adventures begin. Mary and Tommy run away and end up in Cabbage Patch-which is hinted to be the poor side of the town. Mary and Tommy are helped by Miss Hazy, Miss Wiggs (of Miss Wiggs and The Cabbage Patch), and many other residents of Cabbage Patch. If you like humor ala' Ma and Pa Kettle, then you'll enjoy this charming tale.
