KIRKUS REVIEW

When Lucky Lincoln wins a camera for guessing the number of gumdrops in a fishbowl, he's inspired to enter a number of box-top contests and furnish the projected Plum Street clubhouse with his prizes. But instead of the color TV, ping-pong table and guitar he expects, Lincoln receives consolation prizes of soap, canned hash, and so much penny junk he sets up a flea market to clear out his room. The market is a disaster but it does result in mean Mr. Woods sponsoring the club and rival Plum Street boys uniting to get it going. The story will take no prizes for impact or inventiveness, but it's all agreeably believable and easy to read.
