Hilda and her Doll.

Hilda and her Doll.

Hilda played happily in her Greneda, West Indies home, unaware that she was soon to be sent thousands of miles away, to France, to school. Her father felt the experience of "finding her level" would be good for her character, but for a long time she was miserable at school. Her classmates teased her for the wonderful gift her nurse had given her, a beautiful handmade West Indian doll. The international flavour of this book keeps it from being a Sunday School tract.

20098 The Peek-a-Boos At School by Byron, Chloe Preston ill.

The Peek-a-Boos At School.

Here Jane, Kenneth, and Algernon with assorted smuggled pets and goodies are sent away to Boarding School. Jane refuses to take 2 from 7.... "Why can't I leave it where it is?" and no one wants to weave silly mats. This McLoughlin publication is simpler, with American references, and 6, not 8, coloured illustrations with the register is a bit off on some. That said, May Byron and Chloe Preston make wonderfully funny team!
