The Thursday Kidnapping

(1963)
A novel by

 
The Thursday Kidnapping tells of a day in the life of four intelligent, articulated and self-reliant children who find that, through the momentary carelessness of one of them, the baby in their charge has been stolen. There is a panic, a search, hopes are raised and disappointed ... What is unusual for a book originally published in 1963 is the author's respect for humanity. She refuses to invent more criminality than can be found in the lonely, envious child of stupid and careless parents, and she expects sensitivity and understanding in her readers.
