KIRKUS REVIEW

A group of outstanding adaptations of famous stories for radio, this collection of royalty free plays should be invaluable to the drama, speech or literature class. From stories by Hawthorne, Dickens, Wilds, Stevenson, Alcott, Edward Everett Hale, Mark Twain, Irving, Cooper and Anatole France, the author has chosen incidents and situations well-suited to this concise, and condensed form. To radio-conditioned children, this presentation of great literary material should have a natural appeal, and lure the child wary of exhibitionism involving appearance, toward dramatic expression. Tight, balanced construction, authentic radio phraseology, and the non-royalty policy make this a ""must"" for school and camp.
