THE BOOK OF MAGGIE OWEN

KIRKUS REVIEW

The diary of a 12 year old Irish miss, who, in 1, learns that the English can be loved, that ""Prodestands"" are not horned devils, that being nobel is a great strain, and that Ireland, Paris and a boat trip to the United States are all filled with excitement. There's a native charm about her soul searchings, her interest in the people around her, her three loves -- the English boy, the American doctor, the boat steward -- and her precocious observations. With its mispellings, youthful spirits, it recalls The Young Visiters and will amuse that same market.
