KIRKUS REVIEW

When Mr. Gribble sets out to excerpt famous fiction, he shows an expert eye and a knowledge of his audience -- he keeps his selections short and picks the most active of the set pieces from longer works. For example: ""A Greenwood Encounter"" from Ivanhoe; ""A Slave Wins Freedom"" from Bon-Hur; and ""Pursued by Bloodhounds"" from the Cloister and the Hearth; among 16 others. An excellent introduction to the originals from which these were taken.
