MIGHTY MAGIC

Indians and pirates in an original story which stretches the bounds of possibility but has an almost might be true ring to it. Not frightening, just sufficiently blood and thunder in the air for the modern mother who rebels mildly at too much safe and sane living for her small son's imagination, and yet hesitates to feed him the present gangster diet of the series. Whether the Indians and the pirates really happened or not, there was a treasure chest to save the little old woman her home. The illustrations (by Clara Skinner) have somewhat the quality of the early Jim Daugherty, tending possibly too much toward caricature for some children, but virile and effective.
