KIRKUS REVIEW

Last because he's afraid of getting lost in the desert, Phoum overcompensates for his anxieties in other ways too: he even sticks his tongue out at the Sphinx. Then a storm comes up and Phoum, thinking that he's following the leader, discovers that he's been holding the rope from his own burden of bamboo poles. Newly confident, he's no longer a spoilsport but he still likes to walk last. A-kid-in-a-camel-suit and he looks like a horse.
