One Ruble 37 Kopeks

One ruble 37 Kopeks won’t buy too much in the communist Soviet Union. But For twelve year old Olya Petrenko it is more than a fortune. It is enough for 12 ice creams or 20 pencils or 3 magazines or maybe something special her whole family can enjoy. She knows what one ruble 37 kopeks can buy, but first she will have to earn it. This is an amazing look at family life in the former Soviet Union. $7.99

We have at present 17 different books in print. Some are outrageously funny, others are sweet and sentimental. All of our books share a common theme of uplifting the heart. As lofty as it may sound, here at Morningside, we believe that healthy and happy ideas given to children are the legacy of our lives. Our mission is to change the world for the better... one child's heart at a time.
