KIRKUS REVIEW

Lovingly remembered inclusions, chosen only to beguile time-off from routine, this provides something for every taste,- stories, poetry, humor, light verse, mysteries, fantasies, ghost stories, travel and nature sections, food and drink accounts, three quizzes... a potpourri for pleasure only. The accent is, on the whole, light, but with a serious balance in the general coverage that keeps this from being too frivolous. The contributing authors range from classic to modern, all topranking, and the whole should be a companion to carefree moments -- or hours. In the anthology field this offers a special combination of popular appeal, with something for all moods. A lot for the money.
