MISS CARTER CAME WITH US

As in And Miss Carter Wore Pink the artist/author celebrates childhood in England's Edwardian era in full-color, Grandma Moses style scenes of chaste interiors, town streets and woods and seashore -- all dotted with busy little people. With a quite conscious, one suspects, naivete and an unsullied, meticulous brush Miss Bradley illustrates the pristine prattlings of the younG narrator -- ""Aunt Frances had dyed my nice white hat with a dreadful Black Dye out of a bottle, and the smell -- and oh! the awful stiffness of my lovely hat!"" The text concerning the comings and goings of two children, parents, grandparents, and aunts with one mild mannered suitor, is the blandest of whimsies. Pretty -- a sentimental journey for those who wish childhood had been like this.
