THE GAWGON AND THE BOY
New York : Dutton Children's
IL 5-8, RL 5.9
David had been quite ill. Now that he had recovered, the adults in
his life decided that rather than his being exposed to the rigors of public
school, his elderly and rather forbidding Aunt Annie should tutor him.
David had always been somewhat afraid of "The Gawgon" (so dubbed by silly
Aunt Rosie, who was forever mixing up words, and really meant "gorgon",
one of those mythical creatures with snakes for hair). But what a
world of adventure awaited him ... learning had never been so much fun!
And did Aunt Annie live up to her nickname? That would remain their
little secret... (New
