KIRKUS REVIEW

An English Penrod, adored and deplored by his writer mother, he is the bane of her friends' existences. He tells everyone how to do everything -- he teaches them their professions -- he drowns them in talk. With his boon companion, the silent Donck, he has many quiet adventures, but not so quiet skirmishes with the grown-up world and his schoolmasters. He has his likeable moments, but is more insidiously poisonous a member of society than Penrod. Amusingly told, by the author of Wild Strawberries.
