About The King of Mulberry Street

Dom is nine years old and does not speak a word of English. After his mother puts him on a ship bound for New York City, he realizes he has to learn fast in order to survive life on the streets. He has no money or food; his one possession is a brand new pair of shoes. Follow Dom through Manhattan's Five Points, once the most dangerous neighborhood in New York, as he makes friends, makes trouble, and then learns to makes ends meet.
