"This large and elegant child's book of sending a teacher and his boys off on an expedition of learning in foreign lands. In this case, the party go to Scotland, and through England to Belgium, Normandy and Paris; the particular topics of observation and study being in the fields of geography and history, with special attention to localities made famous in song and story.

Mr. Butterworth is very well fitted, by knowledge and taste, to write a book of this kind, and he has displayed an inventive talent and a degree of liveliness and pleasantry which make his pages very bright as well as truly instructive.

The publishers have supplemented his pen with great zeal and generosity with fine illustrations. Zig-Zag Journeys in Europe will deservedly be one of the half-dozen most popular holiday books this season." [LW]
