KIRKUS REVIEW

A useful book on several scores -- as a record of the developing pattern of the junior Literary Guild; as a supplement to the Junior Book of Authors, in throwing light on how authors came to do specific books, how they started writing, along with personal of autobiographical interest; as a reminder of some juveniles that are still as good reading as the days they were published. Adults writing- or aspiring to write- for young people should find it provocative and challenging, setting as it does a high standard of quality, suggesting approaches, points of view, and recurrent insistence on children's taneously honest critical approach. Place in young people's rooms, for biographical eference plus advice on writing; but don't overlook value among books on writing for the adult section as well.
