KIRKUS REVIEW

One of the biggest problems of the youngest writers is how to make invented dialogue sound real. This collection of conversational snatches is an easy, often amusing, lesson in the ""lost art"". The author and illustrator both contribute regularly to the New Yorker. These are sessions in eavesdropping -- from the funny to the irritating to the heart catching -- each piece has the arresting quality of people talking.
