Reviews mostly by Dr Peter Masters
This series is specifically for children, with a picture cover and large print. The stories are fascinating - some very short. Most are from an era now gone with predictable, happy spiritual endings. Some are tales from the early days of pioneer missionaries. Others revolve round tragic events of poverty and sickness which modern children often find very moving. At a time when stories with a clear moral purpose are hard to come by, children will appreciate and be challenged by these unusual tales.
