KIRKUS REVIEW

Subtitled ""More About the Jonquils"", this is a welcome addition to the annals of that New York City-Central Park adventuring family. Intermittently aided by Mrs. Jonquil, Mr. Jonquil, awed himself at the spontaneities in a child's mind, tells his young daughter Jane about his own youth, walks her to the zoo, picnics with her (and squirrels) nearby, relates the history of his own happy courtship and marriage. In this charmingly written book, Mr. Norman's prose often sparkles like a sunlit Central Park lake riplet and his verse, sometimes written as part of Jane's talk, should be read and re-read aloud. There is a slight overall dreamy quality that wonderfully speaks out the reality of a child's world.
