P' Cookbook Gives Money Saving Ideas For only $2 ^95 and witii only 95 rec^s, "The Pennyplndier's Book of Fino Food" by Caroline Hightower (Simon and Sdnis- tcr) has stood the test of time bttter than most cost-cutUng cookbooks. Shopping advice in its Ultro- duction is just as sound now as it was when the book was published hi 1968. And shopping is just as important as cooMng knowhow when you're trying to save money. The suggested meat servhigs allow for Vi pound each, which is unrealistic today, but they're easy enough to reduce, at either the meat counter or the dinner table. t LETS ao -k (4 nm 9 M itn) Oa FrL.

"The Land Beyond the Riviri'<^iNithent itithor J^sse Stuart's latest book, is the atory of a^ittodiftt Keiitoctor «i»ilyjjjw. are torn from their tm In Appalftchli in « ««ttch tor a bf ttef 1«e in Ohte, the'"promised land aeittMW the rtver." Unlike John termlned not to have gigantic families they can't afford to feed. The force of these decisions does not really affeiet the reader, chiefly because none of the characters has any real personality. "The Land Beyond The River" may be a disappointment for Jesse Stuart readers. It is defhiitely not on the same level as some of his better known works, such as "The Thread That Runs So True," or "Hie to the Hunters." J.O.H. Steinbeck's Joad family in "The Grapes of Wrath," the Perkins family doesn't realty siiffer from being unrooted. The strongest tie which must be broken is leaving the grave of the first bom Perkins child. But there are 12 other children^ including the book's narrator Pedike, who load up in an uncle's truck and move to a farm with borrowed cows and pigs and a six-room house with wall*i >apered walls. Ail goes well until, in one fell swoop, the father is bitten by a coM^rhead, the mother has twins, and the landlord dies. These mishaps take place in chapters well into the last third of the book. Fk 'anMy, this rash turn of events was a relief, since almost nothing had happened in the first two-thirds of the book. The real purpose of the book, instead of being thinly spread over 380 pages, could probably have been made hi a fairly good short story. The idea of a poor family whose pride is under- mhied by accepting welfare is valid. Brainwashed by a larcenous uncle, the Perkins make an ideal foi\ for his plot to snare benefits from the many loopholes hi the welfare system. The children, who are more educated, feel the stigma of welfare that their parents seem unaware of. As the children become hidependent, they seek a better way of life and are de- delight and a joy.

"The Alphabet Boat, A Seagoing Alphabet Book" by George Mendoza; pictures by Lawrence Ol Fiori; pub. American Heritage Press. The Alphabet Boat which marks the author's 100th book for children, must reflect the author's love of ships and the sea. With lyrics, seagoing Hnes and nostalgic pictures, the author and artist together have produced a bo(^, anyone 6 or ' would enjoy. In fact whether you know the alphabet or not, the book Is a the celebrated actress by some^ one who actually knew her, and the only one to portray her with the immediacy and authenticfty afforded by firsthand observations. Neither a "complete life" nor a "definitive bkigraphy," Tun^ ney offers instead a portrait: a wann and lively memofar of a woman, and of a friendship. "I have simply described our meeting and our frlend^p over the years; as well as pointing out, and attempthig to explain, the remarkable difference between the personality I knew and the legendary character she became hi her lifetime," says Tunney of his presentation of TaUulah. The TaUulah who emerges through his deUneation is not a madcap eccentric but a genuhie original — a woman of boundless energy, uncommon hiteUi- gence, Umitless loquacity and outrageous humor. InfuTlathigly unpredictable and given to great rages, TaUulah Bankhead was also compulsively generous, particularly ui her unsthithig praise of other — rival — actresses. Despite her reputation for scandal, her penchant for the unconventional and her cool sophistication, the real TaUulah, discloses Tunney, was curiously Puritanical. Tunney shows how her strong moral code worked to the detriment of her career, for she often turned down choice roles, including that of the Pruicess I ("a vile creature") hi Tennes­ see William's Sweet Bird of Youth," on that basis. Until her death in 1988, TaUu­ lah Bankhead displayed the combination of charisma and talent that, being a legend in her lifetime, the world demanded tn these pages, whera Tallulah oeeupies the center of the stage with all her custopiary assurance, she lives agahi.

The shoe found on the second'floor landing had the man's foot stUl hi it! Thus a Uttle boy's fantasy erupts hi a chlllbig cUmax hi John ColUer's story from Joan Kahn's newest anthol- ago, "Some Things Strange and Sinister." In this selection of 14 varied and unnerving tales, — such masters as H. G. WeUs, Guy de Maupassant, Wilkie Col- Ihis and Agatha Christie tread that eerie line between reality and fantasy which gives the reader pause to wonder and tremble. In Louis Golding's story, a hand that jouied twin boys at axe, reclaims the missing brother in death. Margaret Irwin writes in "The Book" of an esoteric volume that mysteriously left no gap when removed from the shelf but which gradually led an ordinary family like Mr. Corbett to murderous thoughts — and destruc- birth, though severed by an tion. The story by John B. L. Goodwin enmeshes the reader in terror with filaments as inescapable as the cocoon spun by a vengeful moth around its tomentor. And the anonymous story, "The Ghost of Washington," concludes the collection on a note of whimsey as a bicycle tour of historic Valley Forge on Christmas Day leads one John Reilly to be accused of spying, and to race his bicycle against a soldier's steed before the bemused eyes of the great general.
