KIRKUS REVIEW

A collection of juvenile repartee from the author's radio and TV interviews runs from howlers to whoppers in answers to questions on his unrehearsed programs. Truth unvarnished about parents, teachers, school, money, brothers and sisters, daily life and personal affairs also includes unblushing revelation of family jokes and secrets, wishes and ambitions, unpredictable activities, games and parties, toys and pets. There are descriptions and confessions, daydreams and hobbies; there are many odd thoughts and imagination unloosed; there is a sense of the child's world in his understanding -- or misunderstanding -- of adults and their ways. Sixteen years of youthful guests have given Linkletter an overflowing storehouse and he is little less than ebullient over his selections. There is an introduction by Walt Disney, and Charles M. Schultz, of Peanut fame, will do the illustrations. Funnier, perhaps, in small doses, this does have a potential in its family-familiar appeal. Partial S.E.P. appearance.
