WAG-BY-WALL

A collector's item, this last story of the famous children's author, which has a certain old-fashioned appeal. Of an old woman who lived happily alone with her clock and her kettle, who faced bleak hopelessness when real poverty came but who was saved by a literal windfall and was able to have her little granddaughter come and live with her. The Horn Book has given it a charming format and the decorative woodcuts by J. J. Lankee keep the unassuming quality of the text. Vintage, rather than current, appeal.
