The Slim Princess (Illustrated)by George Ade
- LendMe LendMe™ Learn More
Every now and again, when we are treated to a thoroughly spontaneous and refreshing bit of humor, our surprise and satisfaction are so great that we are in danger of an almost Latin extravagance of acknowledgment. Take, for instance, the tickle - some nonsense of George Ade's story of "The Slim Princess," a Turkish lady to whom fate had denied the creased and overlapping charms that wait upon fig-paste and a cloistered life.
George F. Kerr's illustrations and George Ade's text march hand in hand to an easy victory over our susceptibilities for a good laugh!
The story is an unalloyed delight from beginning to end, sparkling with genuine fun.
"The Slim Princess" is lively, diverting and amazingly up-to-date.
