'A most charming book for children. The pictures are very pretty, and the children represented in them
look like real children as they are seen in nurseries, which is not always, nor even often, the case in books of
this sort. Good writing also is not abundant in literature for the young, andfor this reason the excellent
stories by L. C. will be the more attractive. They display a delicate fancy, and will be read with real pleasure
for their literary merit by grown-up people as well as children.'-TIMES.

With numerous Illustrations by H. J. A. MILES. Crown 8vo. cloth, bevelled boards, 3s. 6d.
One of the best books of the season for boys and girls of from seven to ten years old. The two sisters
whose names begin the initials N. or M. go down to stay with a kindly but eccentric old clergyman, and make
the acquaintance of two lads of utterly dissimilar character. One of them becomes their champion and
companion, the other their fee. The story is by no means a sad one. The tone is throughout bright
and cheerful, the characters are well drawn, and out of the ordinary course. The book is sure to
.become a favourite.'-STANDARD.
