Includes two stories:
* Doctor Willie and the Fretful Squire, by Harriette Baker, and

* Narrow Escape, by Christoph von Schmid

Johnny eagerly anticipates the days ahead, because his cousins Willie and Helen are coming soon! But there’s more to it than he knows! For, what better person than Doctor Willie to cure Johnny’s exasperating propensity to fret and complain? In his amusing way, Willie seems to say just the right words at just the right time – – and Helen’s quiet strength and solid character have a great impact on Johnny’s impressionable mind as well.

You’ll find Doctor Willie and the Fretful Squire to be a refreshing story as the joys and frustrations that Johnny encounters seem strangely familiar to us all.

The second story, von Schmid’s Narrow Escape, is set in the Black Forest village of Steinach, Germany. In this wild, mountainous region, during the Napoleonic Wars of the early 1800s, Catherine is surprised when a wealthy stranger offers her a great deal of money in exchange for her hat – a birthday gift from her mother. What can come from this transaction? Will ill-gotten wealth bring dishonor to Catherine’s family or can God use even the purchase of a simple hat to bring great good and joy to those who love Him?
