Read full description of the books:
Tell Me a Mitzi consists of three stories in one book, about Mitzi and her younger brother and their daily tales. I must admit that the tales weren't all that enthralling, and some of the sentences were very long and lacking in punctuation. I assume this was done with the intention of making it sound exactly as Mitzi would speak in her early years, but doesn't make it easy for young people learning to read. From what I understand though, the Mitzi tales are a classic and to have three books in one place is a nice touch - children from the 70s will no doubt look back at these stories with fondness and adoration. I like how some simple tales, such as Mitzi sneezes, have been turned into sweet little stories.
