In The Saga of Haggle Lee Ho by J.R. Poulter, Haggle’s neighbors, who are rich haughty folk, constantly dismiss him and look down upon him. After all, how can a poor farmer be of use to them with their riches and superfluous wealth? But nothing could be further from the truth as they soon come to find out. The plot follows the shift in possession of an antique vase, starting from a rich couple’s house. The vase exchanges hands from home to home as many owners reject it, driven by pretentious acts of generosity. The vase’s journey is intertwined with Haggle’s life as he sells vegetables to his conceited customers. Haggle constantly wonders when his life will change for the better for him to finally marry his love, Augusta.
Filled with beautiful illustrations, The Saga of Haggle Lee Ho or, better still, Solomon, will prove interesting to any young reader. As the story begins, Haggle seems to be an ordinary farmer, but his fate changes for the better. Haggle endures much, but he remains determined and hopeful, driven by optimism and his love for Augusta. I liked the positive turn of events. The end of the book is skilfully brought together from an interesting plot. I especially liked the important lesson contained in The Saga of Haggle Lee Ho. The book emphasizes the need to treat people with respect, despite their background. I found it really applicable and realistic. In addition, like many of J.R. Poulter’s books, this story is both comical and enthralling.
