VREDENBURG, Edric (ed.)
Contributions by E. Nesbit and Norman Gale with drawings by Hilda Cowham, S. J. Cash and Mabel L. Attwell. The Attwell b&w illustration on page 72, depicting a mother and her children, is especially endearing. "De Clever Pickaninny" and other non-politically correct representations by H. Dix Sandford appear on pages 27, 31 and 42. Includes stories "Santa Claus' Wonderful Present", "Three Little Pigs", "The Daisy's Day", "Princess Iolanthe", "Two Little Anglers"; and poems "Fairy Island", "The Goose Boy", "Trouble" (illustrated by Attwell), "Off to Meet Daddy", "In the Meadow", "De Handy Man," "The Nervous Walrus", "A Hot Time", "The Wise Hollyhock", "Prince Charming", "A Squall on the High C", "The Snowball", "Sea Song" (by E. Nesbit). The Christmas theme adds to the charm of this volume.
