THE BIG SPLASH by Carol Kendall


Email this review


A group of children become involved in a community fund raising project. Their supervisor, a cunning young man, more interested in self than community enrichment spurs them on to collect an astronomical sum of money in exchange for which he will stake them to a float for the Charity parade. By wit and determination, they meet their sales quota, devise an ingenious ducking pond float which represents Puritan days, and convince their adult advisor to route the funds in the proper direction. A lively menagerie of boys and girls in perpetual activity are inventively portrayed by Carol Kendall and present a cheerful, believable story.
