A SONG FOR ARABKLIA by Marguerite Leslie
Kirkus Star


Email this review


An unobtrusive, but in it's own quiet way, thoroughly enchanting little story of fact and fancy about Arabelia, one of the early Stanley steamers. When Arabella, a dainty little jewel of a car, was first bought long ago, she could not have guessed that no many strange things could happen to her. There was a period of daring exhibitions when she drive down a deep chute at fairs, climbed the White House steps and met the President, a period of rushing a country doctor to his patients; a happy time in a family of children, then years of neglect, and finally a strange race at an Antique Car Meet. The author has done careful research on the subject, and ""Arabella"" herself may be seen in James Melton's Musnum.
