It just misses being a very delightful story. As it is, it has a certain piquancy that will attract some young readers who like a feel of fantasy in their fact. The story of a little girl whose parents have gone to India, and of her headlong falling into trouble here, there and everywhere. Spoiled, indifferent to others' comfort, she causes unhappiness and makes things hard for her comrades, schoolmates, benefactors, friends and enemies. In spite of which, she wields enchantment. The story in a trifle misty as to locale, time, etc. and there is a possibly deliberate haziness in the plot, but it makes somewhat puckishly entertaining reading. The Reginald Birch drawings give it an old world charm.
