Quite in Theo. Gift's best vein are these stories adapted from the Birth Stories of Buddha. They teem with wit and satire-which will be fully appreciated by both adults and the children for whom they are written.Some of the tales seem strangely familiar, despite-or in consequence of-their Eastern origin. As is well known, many-nearly all, in fact-of the tales that have been told to children through the Ages are derived from the simple folk-lore of the imaginative Orient, and hence it is that a definite connection may be traced between the Birth Stories of Buddha and the nursery tales so dear to our own childhood.

It suffices to say that these fairy tales, excellent in themselves, are rendered all the more entertaining on account of the choice illustrations from the brush of 0. Von Glehn, and the tasteful binding and general get-up of this latest addition to the mystic lore of nurserydom. Once more it is shown how much greater are the privileges of the child of to-day than those enjoyed by a former generation.
