About This Lesson

Brrr! Georgie wakes up to a freezing morning in 1920’s Pennsylvania and gets the bad news that  there is no coal to heat the farmhouse—and he knows there is no money to buy more, either. Just after he finds this out, along comes his friend Harley, who drags him off on an adventure to find some mysterious “black gold.” Before Georgie can catch his breath, he’s in a pile of trouble—all the way up to his ears! Take a trip back in time and join Georgie in this heartwarming tale of mischief made and lessons learned in America’s storied past.

Storyline Online's The Coal Thief is read by Christian Slater, written by Alane Adams and illustrated by Lauren Gallegos.
