Item Description...
With the pixiness of Eloise and the innocence of Dennis the Menace, Virginia Cary Hudson was a sprite of ten when she wrote these essays for a very understanding teacher at the Episcopal boarding school she was attending in 1904. With over 1 million copies sold, this humorous collection of small-town Americana has become a modern-day classic, celebrating the honesty and charm of a child's world at the turn of the century. On Moses: "I got so tired of Moses walking forty years and never getting to where he was going. I sure would have bought myself a mule." On the library: "In the library there are signs. Silence. Mrs. Simons [the librarian] must not know they are there. She talks the whole long day." These naively trouncing concepts of school, church etiquette, and everlasting life are both a child's mischievous collection of impressions and an adult's hilarious comeuppance.

O Ye Jigs and Juleps!  Oct 25, 2007
This is a cute little book that I have previously had copies of and each time I lent them out, they were never returned. I now have my own copy and I ordered one for my sister. The book is light reading and enjoyable as well as funny.
A great "keeper".  Mar 23, 2007
I love this book and have for nearly 50 years. I try to give a copy to my friends on the first "special" day (birthday, etc.) after we meet. It is so adorable and everyone I've treated with this book say they love it. They also share it with others. It is so unusual these days to get a giggle on every page and laugh out loud in spite of yourself.

Copies have been difficult to find and my latest were not printed on good paper but I'll take them anyway I can get them. Thanks
Hallelujah and God Forbid!  Jan 5, 2007
O YE JIGS & JULEPS is the collected essays of Virginia Cary Hudson, who by all available accounts wrote them when ten years old in 1904; discovered in an attic trunk, they were published in 1962--and the book became a surprise bestseller. Although it has fallen in and out of print over the years, it has never been entirely forgotten and has met with the occasional reprint over the years.

Most of Hudson's writings are focused, either directly or in a roundabout way, on her upbringing in the American Episcopal Church of her era. (When a relative describes the Episcopals as "stuck up" Hudson, with a child's talent for absolutes, takes the phrase literally.) At the same time, she does not stint the social foibles of her day, and her mix of innocence and savvy causes her mother to have one "Irish fit" after another, all of them described with remarkable pith. "And when my mother got home got home from Middleton on the trolley car," she writes, "she said plenty. And when I thought she said everything there was to say, she still had plenty left."

Even though Virginia's writings encompass only ten essays and run to a mere fifty pages (including line drawings), she covers a lot of ground. Church Sacraments, especially Baptism, get the once over; she instructs us on how to behave in church and what to do when the Baptists next door sing too loud; she tells how to get your garden weeded by giving a party; and lectures on personal appearance, not to mention the Great Wall of China. Much of it is laugh-out-loud funny, all of it is charming, and although it is presently out of print again it is well worth seeking out. Recommended.

Any time you need cheering up...  Nov 1, 2002
Virginia's essays can do it. My husband first learned of this book when a theologian read excerpts of it in a class. He bought it for me and it immediately became a treasure to us both. Little Miss Hudson will have you in stitches as often as you open the book. We have given "O Ye Jigs" as a gift more than once and will again. Our favorite part is 'Sacraments' (Poor little Melvin).
The Best Yet!  Oct 25, 2000
I'm 13 years old and my reading teacher, Mrs. Hunley, is reading us essays in the book. The book is hilarious and great. We haven't finished it yet, but I'm looking forward to hearing more of Virginia's stories. Some of the boys in my class are jocks and they don't want anything to do with reading, I'd be surprised if they've ever read a whole book in their lives, but anyways, even they look forward to reading about Virginia. The whole class laughs non-stop through her essays. I would recommend this book to anyone!
