KIRKUS REVIEW

Another book about Crusoe (which was the children's nickname for Mr. Robinson- and a good one at that.) We met them in Cabin for Crusoe -- remember? In this story Crusoe has acquired a gypsy caravan, and he and his young friends have plenty of adventures in their wanderings through the lovely English countryside. There's a treasure hunt, a house boat, a circus- plus storm, fire, theft and other diversions, pleasant and otherwise, to add zest to the story. David Severn has a flare for lively dialogue and the story is not too English for the average young American.
