It is doubtful whether this tale should be considered a juvenile story or not. The hero is a child, and upon this child the chief interest of the narrative concentrates, but in many respects it is written for mature minds. It is a graphic, simple, and touching tale of unusual power, that may be read with pleasure by old and young alike.
