Daily Mail. — "Mr. Grahame's book will bring youth and joy into many a jaded heart."

Outlook. — "Nobody with a sense of what is rare and humorous and true can afford to miss this volume." Literature. — "In 'Dream Days* we are conscious of the same magic touch which charmed us in 'The Golden Age.' There is magic in all the sketches, but it is perhaps in 'Its Walls were as of Jasper' — the beautiful title of a beautiful story — that Mr. Grahame stand confessed as a veritable wizard." Daily Telegraph. — " Happy Mr. Grahame, who can weave romances so well."

World. — "Could only have been written by a poet full of happy imaginings, quaint conceits, and a certain winsome waywardness which has a charm of its own. . . . The closing chapter is full of a tenderness and reticent pathos far above anything the author has yet achieved. It is certainly a book to be read, for it would be a pity to miss the many exquisite passages it contains."

Literature.—"In 'Dream Days' we are conscious of the same magic touch which charmed us in 'The Golden Age.' There is magic in all the sketches, but it is perhaps in ' Its Walls were as of Jasper'—the beautiful title of a beautiful story—that Mr. Grahame stands confessed as a veritable wizard."

Daily Telegraph.—"Happy Mr. Grahame who can weave romances so well."

Outlook.—"Nobody with a sense of what is rare and humorous and true can afford to miss this volume."

Academy.—"Here we must leave this charming little work. We have said nothing of Mr. Grahame's sympathy with child nature, his penetration and kindly humour; but that is because we have said these things before. They are commonplaces."

Westminster Gazette.—"No writer has more of the secret of childhood than Mr. Kenneth Grahame. Those who remember his 'Golden Age' will need no urging to possess themselves of 'Dream Days.'"

Critic.—"In 'Dream Days' Mr. Grahame is at his best."

Speaker "There are many writers who are haunting the doors of the nursery, and the corners of school playgrounds, with more or less success; there is none who is doing, or who is able so far as we know to do, just what Mr. Kenneth Grahame does."

Country Life.—"The book is, from the artistic point of view, of such importance to all true lovers of literature, it is so entirely out of the common and thoroughly delightful."

Saturday Review.—"It is certainly his most sustained and most finished performance."
