Henry Holt, , , 20th hardback printing. Ex-library edition with only stamp being on top edges, very small water damage to top corner of pages. PA Pot Named Pete. Thanks for the info.
I'll have to ask my friend if these sound familiar to her. Hi again. I have spoken to my friend about this book and she has provided further information. The pot is definitely called Peep, not Pete. It wasn't a magic pot, it was simply one that was divided into three sections where you could cook three different things unheard of at the time. The father of the family was a travelling salesman who sold the pots and the family all had Norwegian sounding names.
The book had a cloth cover. That's about it!yuzu-washoku.com/components/2020-08-08/526.php

Sounds like Sawdust In His Shoes, the story of a teenage circus equestrian who is placed in an orphanage, but runs away and is taken in by a farm family. He trains one of the plow horses, develops an new act, and eventually rejoins the circus. The boy's father, a lion tamer, gets killed, and he has to go to an orphanage, from which he runs away.
The boy is a solo equestrien and finds the perfect horse for him on the farm. He ends up back in the circus as a headliner. I vaguely remember reading something similar back in the early 80s.
