Alexander, Lloyd. The Gawgon and the Boy

Alexander, Lloyd. The Gawgon and the Boy. Puffin, 2001 [0-14-250000-3]
We are in Philadelphia in the late 1920s. David becomes too sick to go to school so his elderly aunt (whom he nicknames Gawgon after the Gargon) volunteers to tutor him. The Gawgon mixes all his lessons into one and makes education interesting to David. David's eleven-year-old imagination takes him on journeys in his mind which intermingle his lessons and his interesting family. Of course the depression hits too! This 199 page book is a wonderful story intermingled with creative glimpses at the past.
