THE HORSE THAT TAKES THE MILK AROUND

Marjorie Hartwell pictures in full color follow the nocturnal routine of a small town milk wagon horse on his rounds, and they scarcely need the verse text which accompanies them. The verse has a good lilt and sense of rhyme, but there's some pretty lame scansion. This probably wont bother the young fry who will like the idea of knowing some of the things that go on while they sleep, as the horse meets the station master and the policeman and the watchman; as milk is delivered at the schoolhouse and the dining stand; as the early morning vegetable truckman hands out a carrot, and the postman and the sheriff and the market woman greet the friendly horse. And finally, as the horse and his owner go back to the milkman's farm. Good merchandise- wonderful value at this price. Should sell like hot cakes.
