Miss Muffet's Christmas Party
By Samual McChord Crothers; illustrated by Olive M. Long; published in 1902 by Houghton Mifflin Company. In which Miss Muffet, with the help of her friend Mr. Spider (for she has grown wise, and knows about spiders, now) has a literary party. A literary party, of course, is a party in which you invite all the people you have read about! Just the thing for Christmas! A charming and very funny book, sparkling with wit. Illustrated primarily in black-and-white, and drawn with a delicacy that seems to walk right off of the pages, this one is a real treasure.
