Received an e-mail from one of Illogical Muse's Contributor's today and thought I'd spread the word around about one of his latest projects.

One of the Most Popular and Influential Children's/Adults Books of the Eighteenth Century.

The History of Goody Two-Shoes was one of the most famous, popular and influential children's/adults books of the eighteenth century. It had an unparalleled status for many years ... It was universally popular for over two hundred years before languishing in obscurity...

Now, after two hundred and forty-two years, Point of Life publishing house has renewed, refreshed, revitalized and recreated the literature masterpiece. By the inspirational pen of Michael Levy the ingenious publication has been gracefully transformed, while at the same time keeping to the original text and meaning as much as possible. It is an updated, encouraging book that is required inspiring reading for all children and adults.

A little girl named Miss Margery Meanwell, is so poor that she walks around with only one shoe. She is orphaned early in life, a penniless urchin, who is given two shoes by a friend... From that moment on she is nick-named, Little Goody Two Shoes.

Little Goody Two Shoes, is a keen learner and becomes an eager pupil of the alphabet. The heroine acquires learning and wisdom at a young age and teaches children to read and write with wisdom. In the second part of the story, as an adult Miss Margery, teaches adults how to stop quarreling and live a peaceful, wholesome life by wearing a "Pals Hat" that can stop to make people think about the differences in their opinions.

Who from a state of rags and care,
And having shoes but half a pair;
Their fortune and their fame would fix,
And gallop in a coach and six.

The story highlights her charitable activities, which results in her being carried from her humble station in life and into a lady of means. The narration in the story by Merry Love, points out the plight of the poor and downtrodden, while fighting the greed and avarice of deceitful men.

To quote one line:

Ah! my dear reader, we brag of liberty, and boast of our laws; but the blessings of the one, and the protection of the other, seldom fall to the lot of the poor; and especially when a rich man is their adversary.

The narrator points out not too much as changed in the past two hundred and forty years. If anything the greed has been magnified while the poor are still poor and downtrodden.

Many exciting adventures befall Goody Two Shoes and her bother Tom. Levy's inspirational style of writing fits like a hand in a glove with the original unknown authors text.

The story is sure to delight children of all ages, as it has past generations...It is a highly spiritual experience.

The book devotedly points out that everyone who calls themselves a human being has a choice to follow Goody Two Shoe's pathway to happiness and wisdom ... The book has been rewritten and renewed for the benefit of all humanity no matter what creed or color.
