This is not a review, but a list of the contents. The title page has the following message: "Illustrated by Florence E. Nosworthy, Harrison Cady, Harold Sichel, Tony Nell, Culmer Barnes, Katharine Gassaway, Albertine Randall Wheelen, Emily Dunham, Laetitia Herr, Dorothy Ficken, Ethel N. Farnsworth, Josephine Bruce, Louis Wain, and many others". The illustrators will be listed after the stories and their authors if the illustrator signed his or her work. The illustration on the title page, which is of a little girl seated between two fairies, doesn't even have initials. I will use (bwr) to indicate an illustration that appears to be a black and white reproduction of a color illustation. CONTENTS:
