There once was a picture book called The Folding Father which I thought insufferable- but negligible. I proved to be wrong- the children adored it....Perhaps I am wrong again, for this I think falls flat on its face, so far as I am concerned. The Kurt Wiese illustrations will doubtless redeem it. Some children will think it good fun. I think it just silly. It is a story of a little boy who was embarrassed by a queer father who did everything double,- he slept on two beds, had two jobs, bought two of everything-and wanted two wives and two sons. A partial solution was found but it didn't cure him. He started all over again. Now do you think that is funny?
