In the year leading up to World War II, Jews desperate to leave Nazi-dominated Germany, Austria and Czechoslovakia found the world's doors of refuge closed--except for one small chink. Great Britain, in a singular gesture, agreed in late 1938 to accept some 10,000 refugee children between the ages of 2 and 17. The deal was a harsh one: No one 18 or older, including the children's parents, would be admitted.

KRAVEN IMAGES by Alan Isler (Bridge Works: $21.95; 264 pp.). Alan Isler's first novel, "The Prince of West End Avenue," was hailed for its blend of drama and comedy. His second, "Kraven Images," keeps the two separate. The bulk of the story is played strictly, if skillfully, for laughs.

Alan Davidson, a food writer and the center of a worldwide network of culinary scholars, died Tuesday at London's Chelsea and Westminster Hospital after losing consciousness at his home a few hours earlier. He was 79. In recent years, he had suffered from various health problems and walked with two canes, but on Nov. 5 he was able to accept the Dutch government's prestigious Erasmus Prize in Amsterdam.

Newport is already known for its sailing, jazz festival, Gilded Age mansions and International Tennis Hall of Fame. If Anita Rafael has her way, the resort town will add walking to its list of attractions. "Newport is a great place to walk because you can get almost anywhere in 20 to 30 minutes maximum, get an intimate view of Colonial history, plus see parts of the town banned to commercial traffic," says Rafael, the guiding force behind Newport on Foot, a walking tour company.
