All of the illustrators original engravings are included and appear in good-contrast black and white.Enjoy!Mary Louisa Molesworth typified late Victorian writing for girls. Aimed at girls too old for fairies and princesses but too young for Austen and the Brontës, books by Molesworth had their share of amusement, but they also had a good deal of moral instruction. The girls reading Molesworth would grow up to be mothers- thus, the books emphasized Victorian notions of duty and self-sacrifice. [Roger Lancelyn Green, Mrs Molesworth (Bodley Head, London, 1961]Mrs Molesworth is best known as a writer of books for the young, such as Tell Me a Story (1875), Carrots (1876), The Cuckoo Clock (1877), The Tapestry Room (1879), and A Christmas Child (1880).

She has been called the Jane Austen of the nursery, while The Carved Lions (1895) is probably her masterpiece. (Green, Roger Lancelyn, The Golden Age of Childrens Literature, in: Sheila Egoff, G. T. Stubbs, and L. F. Ashley, eds., Only Connect: Readings on Childrens Literature, New York, Oxford University Press- second edition, 1980- pp. 9-10.)
