is the first book of "Fr. Finn's Famous Three". Along with sequels
Percy Wynn and Harry Dee, Tom Playfair was the most
popular of Fr. Francis J. Finn's twenty-seven Catholic novels for young people.
Available for the first time on audio CD, St. Joseph Communications' all-new
recording of this beloved classic is destined to become a family favorite!
As an eleven-year-old Francis Finn was a voracious reader, devouring such classics
as Cardinal Wiseman's Fabiola and Dickens' Nicholas Nickleby. After
his first communion at age twelve, Francis began to feel the desire to become
a Jesuit priest. During his seminary days the prospective priest was assigned
as prefect of St. Mary's boarding school or "college" in St. Mary's
Kansas. There he learnedoften the hard wayhow to teach and discipline boys. And
it was there that the future Fr. Finn wrote the first chapter of Tom Playfair.
When he read it aloud to his class they loved it! Of course they wanted more,
and so will your children when they hear this remarkable audio book. A "Catholic
Resembling a Catholic version of Charles Dickens' stories, or even the Hardy
Boys, the various adventures of Tom Playfair were read by hundreds of thousands
of young people in the late 19th and 20th centuries. But
young Catholics today love Tom Playfair too! Their quaint turn-of-the-century
language is part of the charm of the stories as is Fr. Finn's own brand of humor.
When the kids "get into" his style they find it hilarious!
But besides being
good fun, the stories have a moral. Tom Playfair is an unruly little
boy when he is first sent to St. Maure's boarding school, but he develops into
a good Catholic young man and a leaderwithout ever losing his high spirits.
Treat Your Family
According to the American Catholic Who's Who, Fr. Finn was "universally
acknowledged the foremost Catholic writer of fiction for young people." It
was Fr. Finn's lifelong conviction that "one of the greatest things in the
world is to get the right book into the hands of the right boy or girl."
As Tom Playfair himself says, "One good Catholic story will do more good
than a dozen volumes snarling against books that boys ought not to read!"

tale for Catholic boys and girls ever published!
