The mumpy or measley sick-a-bed can console himself with this books of do's and don'ts for a speedy recovery. His itching chum with chicken pox can also find this an infectious tonic. Jeanne Bendick's pictures of spotted and lumpy little patients and the accompanying stories and verses about a mermaid who caught cold when her tail dried out, and the knight who couldn't raise his visor when he had mumps, should coax a smile from the most dispirited convalescent. A wonderful gift item too for the child with a fracture, for it counsels. . . ""bones are not like glass or dishes. They can't be fixed with glue and wishes."" A real cure-all.
