KIRKUS REVIEW

It is held to be a fact that true humor is a slightly unfocussed view of the ordinary. This is the completely unfocussed view of early childhood. As such, it is of inestimable value to gag writers because children really are funnier than they intend to be or than the adults who try to be. Did yez know that a ""scarlet"" is, by juvenile definition, ""a little scar""? Well, did yez? Or that giraffes ""are a rich source of necks?"" Or that, ""Australia is located in the Pacific. It is presently still floating."" The goldmine Linkletter works (Kids Say the Darndest Things, Kids Sure Rite Funny) is that the unintentional humor of earnest children continues to amuse jaded adults. Aim; the funny bone. Sales: steady. Use: browsing.
