      What is one to do when a goat, a dog, a kitten, and two chickens invite themselves to afternoon tea? Why, one allows them to sit at the table and eat poppy seed cakes and strawberry jam!Written in 1924, this little recollection of life in the old country (which appears to be Russia) is a very simple collection of eight stories, each connecting to the previous story. There is Auntie Katushka,who has come from the old country so she can visit her little nephew, Andrewshek, who doesn't always liste [...]

      This is one of the books I think of most when I think about what was on our childhood bookshelves. It's a Withdrawn book from the library we used to go to, and while I don't remember the exact specifics as to how it ended up in my mother's possession (I want to say that the librarian liked us so much that she gave it to us, or maybe we bought it at a book sale at the library), I do remember it being in the house. My mother would read it periodically, and thanks to this book I have an unnatural a [...]

      Somehow, I thought of this book today, one I read when Eisenhower was in the White House, though it was written in 1924! It is the most charming tale of a mischievous little boy, Andrewshek, his sister and his auntie Katushka. The illustrations are bright and delightful. Anyone with young children should find a copy. Mine was given to me by my paternal grandparents in 1959 and It is still by my side today.

      Short 'chapters' make for easy aloud reading to young children. Fun antics and talking animals. Plus, I had a blast saying 'Auntie Katushka' and 'Andrewshek' over and over again!!

      Delightful -- charming characters, talking animals, tea parties. Best of all, the illustrations are just perfect for the story, in bright, saturated colors, including yellow stencil-like illustrations on each page (woodcuts?) framing the text, along with 16 full-color, full-page illustrations and another 16 black and white full-page illustrations. All the pictures have bold and simple lines and all evoke old Russia (at least, that's my guess). If I were an artist, I'd like to draw pictures like [...]

      I remember my mom reading this to me when I was little. My 3 year old got it for Christmas and we just finished reading it together. She loved it and wanted to start reading it again as soon as we finished.
