Item Description...
Location: North America, United States Time Period: Modern Era (1700-1950 A.D.) , WW II Maine 1944 It is 1944 and nine-year-old Clare is old enough to help her family in the Maine potato harvest. This year, with many of the local men off to war, German POWs are brought in to help with the crop. Clare and her family are not sure of the strangers, but it soon becomes clear that these men aren't so very different from young American soldiers. For Christmas, Clare is determined to recreate at least one holiday tradition for Peter, a POW who has befriended her. Her gift-and Peter's present in return-strengthen the bonds of an unlikely and gentle friendship.

Publishers Description
Nine-year-old Clare lives on a potato farm in Aroostook County, Maine, and befriends Peter, a German POW who has been brought in to help with the potato crop one year during World War II when local men were overseas.

Young Girl Learns How Cultures Mix in Charming Maine Story  Nov 15, 2004
Maine's Aroostook County is a special place. Some would say it's America "uncut diamond" for culture, history, sense of place, family and heritage. This distinctive culture was even more pronounced before the advent of television during World War II. A Penny for a Hundred is a charming story based upon a historical account of how World War II German prisoners of war were temporarily settled in this rural area of Maine. Author Ethel Pochocki teaches readers about the nature of forgiveness. This is a marvelous lesson for today's young people who hear about so much violence throughout the world today. Pictures are by Mary Beth Owens. There's also a neat surprise at the end, a recipe for German Stollen. Terrific Holiday gift for children and adults as well.
Evocative and reminiscent of an earlier time  May 17, 2002
Charmingly written by Ethel Pochocki, A Penny For A Hundred is an engaging story for young readers about a nine-year-old girl growing up in America in 1944. When German prisoners-of-war are brought in to help harvest a potato crop, she befriends one of them in this gentle tale of compassion and hope for the future. Very highly recommended reading, A Penny For A Hundred is illustrated in soft colors by Mary Beth Owens that are evocative and reminiscent of an earlier time.
This is an excellent book!  Nov 20, 1999
This book is a wonderful book which shows that not all POW's were bad during WWII. The book shows the warm heart of a child who befriends a POW...This is an excellent book!
