EVERYDAY CHILDREN by Hildegarde Woodward


Email this review


She's played ducks and drakes with the old nursery rhyme idea in pinning new and very sordidly realistic duties to Monday's child, Tuesday's child and so on. But it is a novel idea, and the eight children (Sunday produced twins, to swell the congregation, I suppose) have odd adventures running down their own slated futures -- and finding out they have a chance to choose, after all. The text scampers up and down the page, with pictures worked in, and there's a certain obviousness -- a sort of nursery rhyme pattern -- that is fun. Printed in two colors.
