Without A Silver Spoon by Eddie Iroh
Winner of the International Board on Books for Young People, Certificate of Honour, this story for young people teaches the lesson that honesty is the best policy. Ure comes from a poor but honest family, and works as a houseboy to pay his own school fees. Towards the end of his primary school days he is accused of stealing money. He is saved by the well-placed total trust of his parents and his teacher.
