KIRKUS REVIEW

Would you like them anywhere? -- Well, try them before you finally refuse... Only Dr. Seuss could break down the resistance, and he does it with a contagious use of repeat words and phrases- and winds up with complete capitulation. Here's a tale with a moral- but done so engagingly and absurdly that the reluctant beginning reader may find himself hoist by his own petard. Try for yourself. Here's a book an adult will use -- that will be taken over by the young fry until the oldsters cry for mercy. Line and wash- three colors flat.
