More About Francis J. Finn
Father Francis J. Finn was born to Irish immigrant parents at St. Louis, Missouri in 1859. He loved to read Charles Dickens works as a boy, including The Pickwick Papers, and eventually became a priest thanks to the influence of Father Charles Coppens. After graduating from St. Louis University, he became a Jesuit and was ordained a priest in 1893. He had already begun writing his debut novel Tom Playfair prior to this, as he was assigned to St. Mary s College in Kansas and dealt with unruly boys on a daily basis. He went on to write twenty-seven other books, and his novels for children were very successful. He was much loved by young people, and thousands of them gathered to honor his death in 1928. Francis Finn also wrote That Football Game, Claude Lightfoot, Ethelred Preston, Lucky Bob, His Luckiest Year, Facing Danger, and Cupid of Champion.
Reviews - What do customers think about Harry Dee: Or, Working It Out?
Excellent! Jun 25, 2006
Harry Dee is just as satisfying as the rest of Fr. Finn's books for boys. Girls will enjoy this too. Harry Dee is a little scarier than his other books as it involves a mystery, but comes to a good moral ending. My daughter loves this book; she's read it four times and her younger brothers enjoyed it too. I read it in late middle age and it kept me interested to the end!
