General Lew Wallace pronounces it "An exquisite Christmas prrsent for the little ones of a housebold,' while Mrs. Lew Wallace declares, "Many a child will dance with delight over this charming Christmas gift. From an avalanche of such commendations one inore should be added. Robert J. Burdette, the noted humorist, exclaims, "Happy and gifted indeed is Palmer Cox, who can take a pencil in one hand and a pen in the other and draw pictures and write poems for all sorts of people, from the ages of fi ve to fifty."
