Good selection of card games for kids, but many would be interesting for adults as well. The ten and under crowd of the depression era were apparently better able to grok rules and strategy than the kids of the early 21st century twitch generation. The period illustrations are delightful! Some of the games in this collection are to be found nowhere else, whether on Pagat, in the various "Hoyle" compilations, or even in the excellent books by David Parlett. Additionally, this is the earliest known reference for some of the games described in this book (Yukon and Twenty Nine come to mind). Menagerie, especially with the animal noises variant, might be a forerunner of Snorta.
