This magazine, published by the Sunday School Union in London, featured stories, both amusing and instructive, for the moral and social edification of children. Several of the stories illustrate compassionate and sympathetic treatment of animals, along with many tales demonstrating admirable and useful behavior, bits of English history and sentiments of tradition, and encouragements to piety, all presented in short prose pieces and verse. Quite entertaining.

1875 - 12 issues complete (pp. 1-144). 1876 - 9 issues (Jan to Oct, but lacking the Aug issue, pp. 1-84, 97-120).
