A gay everyday book of an average family -- Mrs. MacMurray, her ""favorite gentleman"" and her three sons. Perhaps it ranks neither as hilarious nor sophisticated amusement, but it is the sort of book that will appeal to almost every family, as unaffected, light-hearted, easy going entertainment. Through all viewpoints you get the high and low of the domestic interlude, the little aggravations, ironies, discomforts, and the fundamental satisfactions, with a lot of good homespun commonsense. Some of this appeared in the Cleveland Plain Dealer. Has a chance for a market drawn partly from that of The Car Belongs to Mother, partly from Penrod. People will like it.
