British Guiana jungles as the background for the story of two native children, left on their own to shift for themselves. In miniature and quite realistically, they solve their problems of shelter and food, of mutual responsibility; they meet the normal childish fears, and conquer them. And in every way, they prove that the native theory that children from eight and nine on, can live as adults, is tenable. It is an unusual approach to the picture of how other children live. I've not seen the illustrations, but Katharina von Dombrowski's name is sufficient guarantee.
