  A perfect introduction to Father Brown *****

This relatively new compilation, taken from the first two collections of Chesterton's Father Brown mysteries, is a perfect introduction to these tales. The lead story, "The Blue Cross," is rightly regarded as a classic. Contrary to the assertions of other reviewers, these stories have withstood the test of time and are more popular than ever. What others call "moralizing" are merely Chesterton's insights into human nature, which reflect the once taken-for-granted belief that we are fallen creatures capable of great evil -- and great good. Each of these tales should take no more than an hour to read and indeed make excellent read-aloud stories for older children. Buy this book and discover what you've been missing.
