The Adventures and Misadventures of a Breton Boy. By Eugene

Mouton. (Sampson Low, Marston, and Co.)—Joel Kerbabu is a Breton boy of some three hundred years ago. He comes of a family of sailors, and his destiny, though he seeks to avoid it for a time, is the sea. His journeyings take him to various remote places, Abyssinia and Japan among them, where he sees and en- dures much. All this is told by M. Mouton with plenty of vivacity.
