The Story of a Bold Tin Soldier

Laura Lee Hope

Book Overview: 

Yes, I suppose you may say I have, admitted the Bold Tin Soldier. "But though my men and I have a fine home with Arnold, still I get lonesome for you toys once in a while. I have met the Sawdust Doll, the White Rocking Horse, and the Lamb on Wheels. Now I am glad to meet you all once more. And how is my friend the Candy Rabbit?" the Captain asked, as he saw the long-eared chap standing near him." This is the story of one of the toys created at Santa's workshop in North Pole Land, who comes down to earth to live with a fortunate little boy or girl.

"That's high enough—don't go up any farther!" cried the Bold Tin

"Yes, I am high enough now," said the Clown. "Watch me hang by my toes!"

He began turning over as he clung to the string, and, as he did so, he began to sway to and fro, like the pendulum of a clock.

"Look out! Look out for the blazing gas light! You'll be burned!" suddenly called the Rag Doll.

And as she spoke, the Clown on the dangling string came too near the gas flame. His baggy trousers, one leg red and the other yellow, began to smoke.

"Oh, the Calico Clown is burning! He will catch fire!" c. . . Read More

Classic story of toys that come alive when no one is looking written for young children. It even has beautiful pictures illustrated by Harry L. Smith. I was familiar with the Bobbsey Twins mystery collection, but had not heard of Hope's other series: The Make-Believe Stories and The Bunny Brown seri
