KIRKUS REVIEW

This is simply an announcement, based on descriptive material and list of contributors, enough in itself to sell the book to all who want to have on tap a varied fare of writers, atirists, versifiers in the best traditions of American humor, from Josh Billings and Artemus Ward down to Robert Benchley and Leonard G. Ross. Stories and People; Fables and Other Moral Tales; All Sorts of Dilemmas; History, Politics, and Affairs of State; Parodes and Burlesques; For (or Against) Children; Satire; Folklore and Tall Stories; Nonsense; The Critics at Work; The Reporters at Work; Verse; Reminiscence, -- these are the thirteen sections into which the material is divided, each prefaced by remarks by E. B. White.
