Dumped…foundling…” and to think he’d never guessed any of it before! Young Solomon had been brought up in the sleepy little  village of  Boring , by an uncouth couple known as Ma and Pa Scubbins.  He always knew there was something different about himself. He had a certain gentility and sensitivity that distinguished him somehow from the slovenly washer woman and her ne’er do well, hard-drinking husband.  Nevertheless, he dutifully carried out his many assigned tasks, which included pick up and delivery of customers’ “unmentionables”.  That is, until the day he learned that he was actually left on the Scubbins’ doorstep as an infant, with a silver spoon in his mouth!  As he sets out to find this silver spoon and the loving parents who left him with it, Solomon is joined in his quest by an irritable redhead named Prudence, a coquettish “Infant Prodigy” with a lisp, and a very cheerful young chimney sweep.  (New Hampshire Great Stone Face 2007)
