Gr 4-6-Lewis has gathered six classic stories, all with the theme of dolls and toys, and put them in this handsome collection. The tales, including Hans Christian Andersen's "The Steadfast Tin Soldier" and E. Nesbit's "The Town in the Library," have a timeless quality about them with appealing plots for children. What makes this book special, however, are the detailed illustrations peppered throughout the stories. Intricate pictures of doll houses, black-and-white silhouettes of toys, and full-page spreads of magical creatures all enhance the beauty of this anthology. To complete the work, Lewis has included an introduction to each selection, aimed at more adult enthusiasts of children's literature than at children themselves. While the old-fashioned appearance may limit readership, the book will appeal to a special audience and deserves shelf space in most collections.-Anne Knickerbocker, Cedar Brook Elementary School, Houston, TX
