KIRKUS REVIEW

There are people who have got kinds of fun that I have not. I often wish that I were they just for an hour, at most a day..."" All through the book this way, but it's always nicer to be ""Me."" So, We often wish as we read and write That the market would say a firm goodnite To children's books in lumpish verse, (They make us brood and weep and curse) Involving kids or cats or mice Who think it would be awfully nice To change their faces, form or fur-- And then rush back to what they were.
