Here is a character as original and witty as “Mr. Dooley” or “the self-made merchant.”  The realm of humorous fiction is now invaded by the stepmother.

“It is an exceptionally clever piece of work.”—­Boston Transcript.

“‘The Second Mrs. Jim’ is worth as many Mrs. Wiggses as could be crowded into the Cabbage Patch.  The racy humor and cheerfulness and wisdom of the book make it wholly delightful.”—­Philadelphia Press.

Mrs. Jim and Mrs. Jimmie
With a frontispiece in colors by Arthur W. Brown.

Library 12mo, cloth decorative $1.50

This book is in a sense a sequel to “The Second Mrs. Jim,” since it gives further glimpses of that delightful stepmother and her philosophy.

“Plenty of fun and humor in this book.  Plenty of simple pathos and quietly keen depiction of human nature afford contrast, and every chapter is worth reading.  It is a very human account of life in a small country town, and the work should be commended for those sterling qualities of heart and naturalness so endearing to many.”—­Chicago Record-Herald.

“As a land pirate Mannering was a marvel of resource, but as a sea-going buccaneer he is almost a miracle of devilish ingenuity.  His exploits are wonderful and plausible, for he avails himself of every modern device and applies recent inventions to the accomplishment of all his pet schemes.”—­Chicago Evening Post.
