MS n m 0.' a. '*• 'Walking Away" by EU«ab«th \V . throp; pub., Harper artd Roiv Inc.; ages 10 up. Emily looked forward each year to her summers on Uie farm with her adored grandfather, a secure world where everything was always the same —except for intriguing things like the dump heap, outside the Cranes* place. And she had talked in glowing terms to her adventurous friend Nina about the wonderful pond, the big barn, the trips to the village store — and the annual Barn Dance. She was sure that this summer was going to be the best ever because Nina was coming for a visit. But what Emily most valued—sharing her grandfather's thoughts and work and love of the land—was not what most interested Nina. And if Emily was disappointed that Grandfather didn't think much of their sleuthing game—Professor Higginbottom and "my dear Lans- dorff"—she was hurt that Nina seemed to find the farm and their neighbors a bit quaint. Emily had to admit with Grandmother that the farm was a bit more run-down this year, and she felt annoyed at Grandfather for letting things go— and for acting standoffish with ^ "Th(B kitchen In History" i^ribntr'a Son*. by MN^y HaMlion; pub., CharlM BRIDES DREAMLAND Where the loveliest weddings begin also the finest in wedding photography.

The author examines the influence of tha kitchen from prehistorie times to the present and provides a lo(ric at a tmique aspect of social history. The book contains 93 photographs and is illustrated throughout with line drawings of kitchen utensils and equipment from various periods. "The Kitchen in History" covers all aspects of the kitchen — architecture, furniture and equipment, the cooking, brewing, laundering, dairying, bottling, picking and cotintless other activities which have tdcen pliBce there. It also in eludes information on how the kitchen has influenced social at titudes. Every page in filled with fascinating lore about the daily lives of our ancestors. It is in teresting to note that consumerism was a matter of utmost concern to housewives as far back as the early 1300s, when bakers and butchers were severely punished for selling underweight or poor quality food. The book also includes some marvelous home remedies. Molly Harrison, a native of England, was for 28 years Curator of the Geffrye Museum in London where the exhibits are arranged in a series of period rooms. She has written and lectured extensively about domestic life and social history. In 1967 she was honored with an MBE from the Queen of Services to Education. "As I wrote The Kitchen in History," says Mrs. Harrison, "I became more .and more proud of the role that women have played for many centuries. The responsibilities and intiatives they have shown have rarely been appreciated." her guest. Then Grandfather got sick—and Nina's wildly dangerous, if exciting, acrobatic stunts on the weakened barn roof sent her back home in a plaster cast. "Things change," Grandfather had told Emily. And this was the summer which challenged Emily with a conflict of loyalties—and with her first painful awareness of time passing.

K«rr! pub., Harper and Row Int.; ages 12 up. in this new novel by the author of the highly acelaimed "Dinl^ Hocker Shoote Smack!" the bewildering ways of love- its reversals and betrayals- lead a high school senior who knows all the answers to questioning all he knows. Alan Bennett considered himself "very handsome, very cool. Dynamite." And the arrival of Duncan Stein at Cayuta High SdHMl should not have made waves. Balding, antisocial, anti sports Duncan was immediate* ly nicknamed "Doomed." Yet it was Duncan who rejected Alan's gestures of friendship, Duncan who intrigued the whole school with his insane newspaper devoted to the Ideal of unrequited love, Duncan who started the run on anemones at the local florist's. And—incredibly—it was Duncan who took over Alan's girl. Nor was that the only upset in Alan's world. Tliere was the pain of meeting the father he had never known—and the attraction he came to feel for Duncan's beautiful mother. As Alan loses his girl, his cool and his equililnrium, his awareness of others and capacity for feeling deepen. Narrated in the first person, the story Alan set out to write "of a kid who moved to our town in my senior year" begins, in fact, the story of his own self-discovery. M. E. Kerr's first novel for young readers, "Dinky Hocker Shoots Smack!" was praised by The New York Times Book Review as a "brilliantly funny book that will make you cry. It is full of wit and wisdom and an astonishing immediacy that comes from spare, honest writing." Miss Kerr, a native of Auburn, N.Y., attended the University of M i s s o u r i. She spent some years in Brooklyn Heights and is now living on Long Island. If classic was the byword for fall ready to wear, classic elegance is the key to spring and summer in the fashion season ahead, says designer Ralph Lauren.
