Will it ever be Charley’s turn to carry the flag?
When Charley Cornett begins school in the Appalachian Mountains, his brothers and sisters explain to him that the highest honor at the Little School is being chosen to “carry the flag”—the award each day for a child who has been very good. Mischievous Charley doesn’t seem to be the ideal candidate for such a distinction, but eventually he achieves this honor in his own special way.

This much-loved book by a Newbery Honor–winning author has been in print for four decades. Children will identify with Charley’s school triumphs and woes and cheer for him to carry the flag!
