This was a fun little collection of short stories. It contains the only two nonfiction stories he ever wrote, both of which were the most memorable of the bunch. The first, Mildenhall Treasure, is his account of the plowman who discovered the most valuable Roman-ear antiquities ever found in England. It reads like one of his children's books, but it was originally published in the Saturday Evening Post. The second, Lucky Break/Piece of Cake, is the story of how he became a writer. I enjoyed the comments of his teachers from his English composition class: "a persistent muddler," "indolent and illiterate," "ideas limited."
