KIRKUS REVIEW

To the parents who wait for the merry-go-round ride to end and wonder wherein lies the fascination, this view of the ride from the child's viewpoint is illuminating. For the little boy travels far on his white horse; he goes past the giraffes, past the balloon man, past the swan and the ducks, past someone reading a long book, even- main triumph- past the waiting parents, ad infinitem. The format is designed for lying on the floor and turning the pages -- of heavy cardboard, spiral bound. Rather special, this.
