THE GOLDEN BOWL

A bit older children in the read-aloud category will like this pleasant little story of the New Orleans restaurant where the food was so good you wonder why patronage over dropped off. It is the tale of little Marie, who helped on Saturdays, of old Peter and Fat Anna and Slim, and of how they decide to give themselves and the old reliables one last gorgeous meal before closing. Then into its savoury atmosphere comes a countess, and at the end it is she who promises to save the restaurant from oblivion. Nice details of markets and restaurant; good picture of relationship between children and adults; the sorts of facts about behind the scenes that will appeal to seven and eight year olds who like to help at home- and charming soft-toned pictures.
