Three Great Animal Storks. (Collins, I8s.). Very exciting, easy to read true stories. Plenty of photographs for two of them, the third being illustra led with line drawings. The Big Book Of Pets. ;Dobson, 31)s.1. Lavishly illustrated collection of animal stories by well known authors. Would make a very special present for an animal loving teen-ager.
Winter's Tales for Children, (Macmillan, 25s.). The high standard of last year's miscellany is maintained, and I feel that there are few children who could enjoy all the contents— which, though they may concern children, seem to be written for adults. For the highbrow. Alfred Ilitchcock's Ghostly Gallery. (Max Reinhardt, 21s,). A good variety of creepy tales. Not too spinechilling, but definitely for the thirteen upwards only.
