KIRKUS REVIEW

An amusing and characteristic introduction shows how Milne of recent years is in constant comparison with the younger Milne of Punch -- and how, from the objective distance of twenty to thirty years, he has dared appraise his own young writings and issue, in this volume, what he considers the best. Essays, frequently suggestive of ""Saki"" but not quite so subtle, very entertaining reading. He divides the material into six sections, -- Games and Pastimes, Life's Little Difficulties, Little Plays for Amateurs, Stories of Successful Lives, A Mixed Lot and Burlesques. Unprepossessing format.
