KIRKUS REVIEW

A galaxy of stars as contributors to this lively collection of stories, some of them new, some excerpted from books, some drawn from classic sources. The authors are, in the main, contemporary and familiar,- Laura Ingalls Wilder, Jeanette Eaton, Ruth Sawyer, Elizabeth Janet Gray, Charles Finger, Mildred Jordan, B.J. Chute and Mary Gould Davis. But there is a story by Mary Wilkins Freeman-and one by Lucretia Hale, to salt the new with the old. American backgrounds largely, some with regional flavor (Pennsylvania Dutch for example), and a few from other parts of the world,- Greece, Ireland, Italy, Palestine. There are stories for holidays and special days,- Christmas, Thanksgiving, Fourth of July, Lincoln's and Washington's birthdays, St. Patrick's Day, April Fools' Day, Halloween. There seems always demand for this type of collection, and Phyllis Fenner has a sure touch in selection.
