KIRKUS REVIEW

A family story of Brazil, just at the time when Brazil achieved independence of Portugal -- a story that has caught the flavor of the place, and yet managed to make the children of the story very real and undated. You get glimpses of the home atmosphere, of the friendly priest to whom the children make their small confession, of the drastic steps little Maria Luiza takes to get a baby sister, and of her devotion when the baby sister came. Then there are scenes in the market, the puppet show, the procession of Saint Anthony, the battle of the lemons.
