Illustrations by B«n Shahn, Pantheon Books, .80 tW. Toma9, the boy of old Prague, watt a peasant boy. It was his job to serve the young nobleman who owned the land on which Tomas' parents served. The hours were impossibly long and the tasks were very hard for a young boy, but every child was expected to work as soon as he Was old enough to be away from his mother. Tomas was working in the kitchen of the castle when one of his younger brothers brought word that their mother was very ill. Tomas knew that the illness of his mother was caused by the hard work that she had to do, and the fact that there was never enough food. He looked at all the food being prepared in that vast kitchen and decided to try and smuggle out a plump chicken for his family. Of course, it was his luck to be caught by the young nobleman. The usual penalty for stealing food was immediate hanging, but Tomas was sentenced to a fate which 'ie thought must be worse. The young nobleman sentenced the boy to serve a Jewish family who lived in the Ghetto. All his life, the youngster had heard tales of the terrible things that went on behind these walls. He was certain that he would meet a terrifying death for the amusement of the old man to whom he was being sent. Tomas has a lesson to learn, however, as he witnesses kindness and understanding that he has never seen before. He also sees that this kindness and love of family is repaid by a cruel act of revenge when the young lord of the land is spum­ ed by a Jewish girl. A moving story, A Boy of Old Prague, is sure to provide material for deep thought to the young reader. The illustrations by Ben Shahn are strong and contribute much to the story.— N.C. Captain Scraflna-story and illustrations by Laurent de Brunhoff. Published by World Publishing Co., Cleveland and New York. Under 35 pages. The third in a series of stories about Serafina, a captivating giraffe and her unpredictable animal friends will be welcomed by young readers of the other Serafina books. Here again are Hugo, the kangaroo; Ernest, the crocodile; Patrick, the rabbit, and Beryl, a female frog, whose skin is sensitive to salt water. Their adventures on a boat trip involve such human foibles as struggling for prestige and possessiveness which crops up when Ernest confiscates some of the rabbit's carrots. A beach picnic ends in a sudden storm in which their boats capsize and the friends become separated. The happy ending is their reunion and the triumphant conclusion of their voyage with Serafina herself masterminding the solution of the problem posed by a broken mast. The illustrations charm both young and old in their portrayal of surprisingly human emotions. — M. L. M. LITTLE BIG FOOT, William Campbell Gault, Dutton, 160 pp. Tom O'Connor was the high school football hero. That he deserved the adulation of the many fans could not be disputed. Tom could pass, he could run — in fact, he was every coach's dream. Tom was also a good student, so it came as somewhat of a surprise that he. enrolled at Northern. The college had the reputation of being a football power, but weak on the academic side. Tom's younger brother, Midge, tried to talk Tom into going to Sierra where he would get a real education, but the big white convertible offered by the alums of Northern finally proved the turning point. Midge, too, was a football player, but he couldn't begin to attain the prowess of his famous older brother. He was a specialist — he could kick a football to any designated spot. Midge's one big ambition was to attain a top-flight education, so he went off to Sierra by himself. There he found just the sort of attitude he liked. In this school, football was treated as a sport not a business, and the main emphasis was on the scholar rather than the athlete. Tom goes on to roll up honor after honor on the field at Northern, and Midge and his buddies follow his fame on TV. When the boys return home for Christmas vacation, however, Midge gets the idea that Tom is rather disillusioned with the school. During one game, Tom receives a knee injury, and this proves to the athlete that at a school like Northern, the football star is a property, not a person. In his unhappiness, he comes to visit Midge and finds the sort of school he had really been looking for all the time. How the boys become a team on the gridiron at Sierra and work out their academic problems provides a dramatic end­ ing to Little Big foot. The author has constructed an exciting story which is sure to hold the attention of any young sports fan.—N.C.
