THE BLUE CHINA PITCHER

In a diminutive story and quaint water color pictures, Sarah -- one of those old fashioned, large-headed country misses -- sends tea party invitations via a passing chickadee to her friends Oswald Rabbit and Bernard the Woodmouse. When she mislays her lovely blue china pitcher by Pussywillow Creek Sarah begins to cry, but then her friends arrive for the party and Oswald is carrying a gift -- the blue china pitcher which he had found by the creek. And ""of course Sarah never told him"" how it got there. It is only to be expected that the author's early efforts (she is only fourteen) would come off as diluted Pooh/Potter preciousness, and no counterindication of future achievement, but we can't help wondering why her publishers decided to expose her so soon to the marketplace.
