No date. Lets us know right away what to expect: "This is the first in a series of 'Midget Story Books for Busy People' written by New Brunswick's own 'Story Lady' Marion Wathen Fox. The stories are not of the hair-raising, blood-curdling type; but clean, intensely interesting, romantic, even thrilling--the kind enjoyed by all. Help the author place one in every home and in every Christmas parcel." (Now, I dunno 'bout you, but I wonder just the teensiest bit when a writer feels it is necessary to tell me that her stories are "intensely interesting" -- wouldn't it mean more if a reader thought so?) This one contains three stories: "Judgment At 5 P.M.," "Stubborn Bill," and "Who Sent The Easter Lily." 16 pages. Light edgewear, gentle crease to bottom right corner of front cover, rubbing. An uncommon title.
