The British Boy's Annual and The British Girl's Annual. (Cassell

and Co. 5s. each.)—These two volumes show the customary differ- ence—advocates of equality must look to this—but they are both good in their way. The boys will find exciting fiction, hints on games—an explanation of "Triangular Cricket" may be men- tioned—some things about the Army and the Navy, about postage stamps, and not a few other things. The girls' fiction is net so exciting ; games are not so much in evidence, but there is plenty of entertaining matter, with some that may be found useful. With these may be mentioned Partridge's Children Annual. (S. W. Partridge and Co. 3s. 6d.)—Children are perhaps more easily provided for. Anyhow they ought to be pleased with the very effective pictures which are plentifully provided in this volume.
