At the touch of her pen a farmhouse kitchen, a country toy-shop, and the rich simplicity of a whole vanishing way of life come out of the past for our enjoyment. In this new book there is much to delight the reader. An old-fashioned fire is at once a childs pleasure and a lifesaver for the chiller teamster who has driven his horses through several miles of snow to reach the isolated farm. A visit to spend saved pennies in the village is an event for the little girl of fifty years ago. Mrs. Uttley is a practised and careful observer- her essay on autumn trees has the stuff of poetry in it and is not the least enjoyable of the many delights awaiting the reader.
