KIRKUS REVIEW

Guaranteed to induce wanderlust, the goal, Italy! Mr. Craz, an expert guide, knows instinctively what will interest youngsters on their vicarious visits to Rome, Venice, Siena and Naples. He points out the beautiful fountains, the Appian Way and the Colosseum in Rome, and gondolas and the Piazza del Marco in Venice. He tells a captivating story of the horse races in Siena, and introduces us to young Giorgio in Naples, who immediately takes us through the market place, to a Christmas party and bids us farewell at the docks. Geographical descriptions comparing Italy to a boot whose ""toe seems ready to kick the island of Sicily across the Mediterranean to Africa"", are as lively as the rest of this fine book.
