SEND WENDELL

Whenever Mama asks William, Alice, James, Julie, Walter -- or even, sometimes, Papa -- to run an errand the answer is always ""I'm busy. Ask Wendell"" and though Wendell likes to help Mama he wishes the others liked to help her too. But Wendell gets his own back when Uncle Robert visits from California and the family agrees to send Wendell (when he ""grows up a little more"") to go out and help the friendly, sympathetic uncle on his prosperous farm. The family is black and happy and Symeon Shimin draws them all with beatific smiles on almost every one of his light-rippled, burnished pages, but the push button plot hardly calls for such a rush of unction.
