KIRKUS REVIEW

15 more family anspshots of the Grosses comfortably display Pa, always out of joint with the domestic crises, Ma, always is ""gung by her the tunk"", and Bella whose affections here waver between Mac, ""sulljeh boy"" (or ""bookippeh mit a pistil"" if you prefer) and Morton L. Pomerantz, a stranger whose heavy spending is hard to withstand, particularly when Mac does not answer Bella's letters. Pa and a sunburn, winning an alarm clock, trying to tell a piece of news, his philosophy of the rich and the poor; Ma and a ""plain cult"", trying to matchmaker, on the telephone; Bella waiting for Mac to include her in his future, at a meeting of the club, being bridesmaid, arousing Morty's ""Insarent"", accepting his proposal, hearing from Mac; -- and all straightened out when Pa counterattacks with Mac in person. So time us is liking Mrs. Victrolleh and Mr. Stupy Head and, Pa your infirmation, their dutter, Bella.
