This book contains about two dozen vignettes of little patients the author has met in her medical practice. A hand drawing by the author of each child faces a short verbal sketch on the opposite page. She succeeds in capturing the individuality of personality and physical characteristics of the children in the drawings. The sketches, written with sympathetic and humorous insight, provide light, amusing reading. This excellent little book, handsomely bound and printed, is made to order for the physician's waiting room.
