Little Mother Bunch. By Mrs. Molesworth. (Cassell and Co.)— This

tale enforces the moral that we are not to judge by appearances, but enforces it with a novel application. A certain Blanche Fellows is a very pretty girl, and because she is pretty, is harshly judged by some people who have to deal with her. The two sisters, Blanche, the misunderstood, and Tina, who makes every one think her better than she really is, are capitally drawn. The minor characters are also good, and the tale altogether is an adequate example of Mrs. Molesworth's always creditable work.
