Book Description:
The History of Little Goody Two Shoes is a children's story by an anonymous author, published in 1765. The story is the origin of the popular phrase 'goody two shoes,' often used to describe an excessively or annoyingly virtuous person. In more recent years, the phrase has developed a more negative connotation, implying that the virtuousness of a 'goody two shoes' is insincere. 1 PlotGoody Two Shoes is a variation of the Cinderella story. The fable tells of Goody Two Shoes, the nickname of a poor orphan girl named Margery Meanwell, who goes through life with only one shoe. When she is given a complete pair by a rich gentleman, she is so happy, that she tells everyone that she has 'two shoes.' Later, Margery becomes a teacher, and marries a rich widower. This earning of wealth serves as proof that her virtuousness has been rewarded, a popular theme in children's literature of the era. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Goody_Two_ShoesPlease, Enjoy.
