The fourth story about Paul and Ann, two French children whose adventures have been received with delight by American children (Jannot, Nanette and Grococo). In this new book the children are sent to Paul's old aunt in Brittany to recover from measles, and their adventures are a very natural blend of superstition, fantasy and the kind of thing that could happen to two curious small people. The feel of the costal village and its people, the hunt for the korrigans who are reputed to dance in the moonlight, and the fog that brought about the shipwreck add up to delightful happenings. The pictures, some of them in soft colors- all of them abounding in humor- are charming.
