KIRKUS REVIEW

I can think of no more thoroughly satisfactory vocational story that has appeared on any list -- and that is a real tribute in a year which has as good vocational stories for girls as 1937. Polly has ambition -- and her first job, which she secured on her own, convinced her that she was going to get into the retail business. This is the story of her varied experiences, -- and one way and another, a tremendous number of facets of department store business, from sales to management, are touched upon. Authentic, interesting -- and a good story at the same time. An inside picture of department store workings that every woman should find fascinating reading.
