KIRKUS REVIEW

Three stories by Rachel Field serve as a pleasant reminder of that author's unique talent to combine hominess with imagination and thus arrive at a peculiarly cozy brand of magic. A little girl in a patchwork dress of which she is ashamed finds within its bright patterns the key to the question in a spelling bee; a little boy's wish at midnight saves his beloved park; and a pair of energetic nine-year-old twins make it possible for their aunt, Miss Roxanna Robbins of Cranberry Common, to restore her gingerbread house. Adrienne Adams' quaint and diminutive illustrations suit Rachel Field's delightful style to perfection in their rendering of a tidy, bright little world of gentle events and fulfilled wishes.
