‘Nine Little Goslings’ has nine short stories, intended originally for children of about seven to ten, I suppose. The first one particularly interested me, being about Johnnie (Joanna) Carr, from the author's well-known 'What Katy Did' series. Johnnie dreams about being adopted by a long-lost relative... and it seems as if her dream might come true. Her wise father suggests a temporary arrangement, and Johnnie ends up very thankful.

Recommends it for: Children of 11-14 or adults wanting to recapture the magic of youth!.
A selection of 9 short stories about the expolits of children, all with some moral or hardship attached. The first follows Joanna 'Johnnie' Carr, one of Katy's younger sisters after an illness. It is by far the most enjoyable, although the others are passable but get sadder as the collection progresses.
Cutsie short stories from the author of "What Katy Did". I knew they were for kids, and was okay with that right up 'til the one where the little girl dies, followed by one where a child is basically sold to get her family out of poverty. What the heck?! o_O
Thanks to the wonders that are Project Gutenb erg and ebook readers, I now know, after many decades, what happened when Johnnie Carr visited her godmother!
