Up One Pair of Stairs (My Book House, Vol. 3)

by Olive Beaupre Miller Author

The third volume in the "My Book House" series gives the young child stories of life in other countries and introduces him to the more simple fairy tales. Care has been taken to keep a good balance by offsetting imaginative tales with tales of real life and by including humorous stories. Richly illustrated throughout.
