The King of Mulberry Street

31st December 2005

The King of Mulberry StreetDom is a nine-year-old stowaway, who ends up in New York City on his own in 1892. With only a pair of shoes from his mother, Dom must find food and shelter, avoid the “padroni” who prey on homeless boys, and somehow earn enough money to get home to Italy. Dom is up to the challenge, and works harder that he ever has before to survive. This is an excellent book that really highlights both the best and worst in our country.
