For those who were delighted with the dignified whimsy of Eddie's friend from outer space in Louis Slobodkin's The Space Ship Under the Apple Tree, these further adventures of Eddie and Marty will be enthusiastically welcomed. In a curious blending of comedy and adventure, Marty reappears and sets out with his young earth friend on a tour of Washington, D.C. The little green ship he drives constantly outshoots its mark, but the two friends have many amusing experiences in the various parts of the United States in which they do land, and in the end, Marty's heroism wins him the key to Schuyler's Landing. Louis Slobodkin writes with easy charm and has a real talent for achieving comedy by means of characters whom he portrays as being absolutely innocent of humor. A funny, friendly lark.
