Synopsis: A sequel to Babbitt's The Devil's Storybook, containing ten new tales about the vain devil who tries to get human souls. Black-and-white illustrations.

From Publishers Weekly: Could it be that young readers' minds are going to the Devil? That's certainly not the case in this logical follow-up to that little red volume, The Devil's Storybook. This bluish-green book contains 10 other Devil stories, told by a very dextrous fiddlemaster. There are such familiar diabolical incarnations as a fortune-teller, a hunter, a soldier, a pick-pocket rascal and a "nosey" writer. The fortune-teller causes the populace of a whole village to be overrun by strangers; the hunter helps keep a threatening rhino busy (the latter constantly chases the former); the soldier is upstaged by the Devil's prominent list of historic battles that he's attended; the writer's vice is "writing books no one could understand" he's accused the rascal of attempting to pluck his purse, but the well-versed thief claims it's "all flytrap," since his accuser is "more squeak than wool." There are the usual stories of mistaken identity commonly associated with tales of devilry; and those dealing with "justice" and Christmas: the camel Akbar, a Devil's pet, throws his rider and follows a shining star under which a baby is born, "who was going to be nothing but trouble for a long, long time." The author's traveling to the very gates of Hell brings to this children's book a spacious dimension of unadulterated maturity. These stories are simply some of the funniest available. For Babbitt, the Devil is more than a subject for amusement and less than an article of belief; she is nevertheless writing within the realmthe good and the badof the religious. As in the "Simple Sentences" story, Babbitt can rightly be placed in the middle ground between her two eloquent and hilarious protagonists, the rascal and the writer. A Michael di Capua Book. Ages 8-12.
