YOUNG RICK. By Julia A. Eastman. Large 16mo. Twelve illustrations by Sol Eytinge. $1.50
A bright, fascinating story of a little boy who was both a blessing and a bother.—Boston Journal.
The most delightful book on the list for the children of the family, being full of adventures and gay home scenes and merry play-times. "Paty" would have done credit to Dickens in his palmiest days. The strange glows and shadows of her character are put in lovingly and lingeringly, with the pencil of a master. Miss Margaret's character of light is admirably drawn, while Aunt Lesbia, Deacon Harkaway, Tom Dorrance, and the master and mistress of Graythorpe poor-house are genuine "charcoal sketches."

A remarkable book, crowded with remarkable characters. It is a picture gallery of human nature.
KITTY KENT'S TROUBLES. By Julia A. Eastman. 16mo. Illustrated $1 50
"A delicious April-day style of book, sunshiny with smiles on one page while the next is misty with tender tears. Almost every type of American school-girl is here represented—the vain Helen Dart, the beauty, Amy Searle, the ambitious, high bred, conservative Anna Matson; but next to Kitty herself sunny little Pauline Sedgewick will prove the general favorite. It is a story fully calculated to win both girls and boys toward noble, royal ways of doing little as well as great things. All teachers should feel an interest in placing it in the hands of their pupils."

WIDE AWAKE. AN ILLUSTRATED MAGAZINE For the Young Folks. $2.00 PER ANNUM. POSTAGE PREPAID. Edited by ELLA FARMAN. Published by D. LOTHROP & CO., Boston, Mass.
It always contains a feast of fat things for the little folks, and folks who are no longer little find there lost childhood in its pages. We are not saying too much when we say that its versatile editor—Ella Farman, is more fully at home in the child's wonder-land than any other living American writer. She is thoroughly en rapport with her readers, gives them now a sugar plum of poesy, now a dainty jelly-cake of imagination, and cunningly intermixes all the solid bread of thought that the child's mind can digest and assimilate.—York True Democrat.
