Outspoken, amusing good friendship value in this response of our ""young visitors"" to new stimuli and background, as two English children tell their story. Their father is an Oxford Fellow, one of the organizers of the program of sending English children to safety. The story tells of the plans for leaving, of the boat trip to Canada, of the trials and tribulations of living in the Toronto University Residence, of their joy in a lake holiday, of the arrival of an older married sister and removal to New Milford, Connecticut. From the English viewpoint, what American family life is like, differences in schools, in dressing, in speech, in central heating -- and in the joyous American celebrations. Edited by Alden Hatch, who has managed to retain the spontaneity and simplicity of the record.
