Illustrated with frontispiece and 4 (of 5) full-page plates. OCLC: 38612186 "Squib" is a little boy who has earned this nickname by a way he has of exploding, so to speak, in a rapid gush of impul- sive talk after long periods of silence and inaction. The scene is laid chiefly in Switzerland, where the boy makes a very valuable acquaintance in the person of one Seppi. Seppi's story is a most interesting one, and the whole book is one of very considerable merit. A excellent story for children. . (Inventory #: 40252)
