KIRKUS REVIEW

Young Frederick was caged and carried away when his house's family moved ""near Butterfield Square""; relocating to the Good Day Orphanage for Girls (scene of the author's earlier stories), his family searches him out in an extended effort. Father scurries through neighboring streets, giving descriptions of his son to native mice, and they all get a glimpse of life inside the orphanage with the darn-ing Misses Plum and Lavender, Scrooge director Mr. Not-So-Much, and the twenty-eight girls. Not so much happens (of the girls, only Tatty is friendly) and Father rescues Frederick just before his owner would auction him off. Minor mice ellany despite some langy drawings.
