Penrod and Sam is a novel by Booth Tarkington that was first published in 1916. The book is the sequel to his 1914 work, Penrod, and focuses more on the relationship between the main character of the previous book, Penrod Schofield, and his best friend, Sam Williams. More of Penrod's adventures appear in the final book of the series Penrod Jashber (1929). The three books were published together in one volume, Penrod: His Complete Story, in 1931.
Penrod and Sam was the most popular of Tarkington's Penrod series among film makers, with three separate adaptations eventually being produced:
- Penrod and Sam (1923 film), with Ben Alexander as Penrod.
- Penrod and Sam (1931 film), with Leon Janney as Penrod.
- Penrod and Sam (1937 film), with Billy Mauch as Penrod.
