Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Bret Harte (1836 1902) was an American writer whose western stories and poems launched the "local color" school in American fiction.

Kate Greenaway (1846 1901) British author and artist Kate Greenaway grew up in North London and spent summers in the Nottinghamshire countryside. These happy times from her childhood were the foundation of many of her stories. Her illustrations portraying the idyllic landscape as a playground for children dressed in sumptuous Regency clothing offered a romanticized escape from the realities of the ever-encroaching industrialized world. In her costume designs, she combined the influences of her mother, an accomplished seamstress, with those of her father, a master engraver. She studied art in London where she developed a close relationship with printer Edmund Evans (1826 1905). Together they produced more than 150 books. Greenaway s popular illustrations inspired lines of ceramics, jewelry, fabrics, wallpaper, and children s clothing.

By David Stapleton VINE VOICE on January 7, 2004
Format: Paperback
An adventure story of nine year old Polly and one of her many personas. Written in a time before political correctness, it may still be good reading for pre-adolescent children. Although some of the words are more advanced than I would think appropriate, this book would make a decent work for an early reader or as a bedtime story, short enough for one session but involved enough for children that have graduated beyond Hop On Pop and Go Dog Go, yet are not quite ready for lengthier stories like Dr. Doolittle and Stewart Little.

My children chose this book for bedtime story because the name was so appealing. Once they realized it was a description of children's pretend, they had to know what happened next. The prose remains mysterious until the very end when they better began to understand the setting and the time period.

Especially interesting was the historical magical worldview and treasure digging that was common in 19th century America. For readers interesting in learning about how the magical worldview shaped US institutions, read D. Michael Quinn's Early Mormonism and the Magical Worldview.

Engaged my imagination. Enjoyed a look at the period ambience and use of a vocabulary not commonly heard among today's children.
