The heart tragedies of this little girl with no one near to share them, are told with a delicate art, a keen appreciation of the needs of the childish heart and a humorous knowledge of the workings of the childish mind. This author possesses the rare gift of portraying all the grotesque little joys and sorrows and scruples of this very small girl with a pathos that is peculiarly genuine and appealing.

Contents: The hundred and oneth -- The thousand quilt -- The Bible dream -- The cook-book diary -- The bereavement -- The feel doll -- The plummer kind -- Article seven -- Un-plummered.
