The innumerable children who loved MR. PINE'S MIXED-UP SIGNS will be delighted by his new misadventures. They will also have fun with words—and, incidentally, learn something of the phonic elements. Some will be able to draw an extra dividend—a feeling of why it was important to Mr. Pine that his house should not be just like everybody else's.
