Format: Paperback
The story is sweet and the illustrations are fun. This very short book is great to have on hand for visiting kids.

I had a large set of these books in the late 70's/early 80's. The stories were good, but the illustrations were something that always made me smile. I shared the books with my daughter in the late 90's/early 00's, and she loved them, too. I could never find this one way back when, so added it to our collection. Grandbabies might enjoy these in the DISTANT future.

I moved to Alaska this year, just before my mother's birthday. I got her this for her birthday, and she absolutely loved it! It's set in Nome, Alaska, and has the most endearing, sweet story. Please read it!

I didn't pay attention to the fact that this is a re-print but I grew up with all the Serendipity books and I am very happy to have some to read to my son. This book is fabulous and the moral of the story is great! Very Recommended and that goes for all Serendipity books if I could have bought them all I would have

Long ago I purchased the original run of these books when I was a kid (1974) - then, they carried a cover price of $1.00... Now, my son, aged 2 1/2 loves them and we read Morgan and Me, Wheedle on the Needle, Gnome from Nome and Serendipity.
I am SO DELIGHTED that these books are still in print and available for all to have. Mr. Cosgrove and Mrs. James have written and illustrated some wonderful books. I look forward to other books.
