THE DAVENPORTS ARE AT DINNER

This falls short of the standard Miss Dalgliesh has achieved in most of her family stories. The Davenports are a bit too noble-they take even their hard luck too gallantly (when they are evicted from their home and have to move into the barn- all seven of them). They live in a Connecticut town and adore each other, even the new step-mother who passes all the tests the children set. One of the children invents a radio program- informal dinner talk of the clan- and Father writes and illustrates juveniles-and they manage to get along. There's a thin wedge of mystery but not enough. Sorry- we just didn't think much of it.
