KIRKUS REVIEW

Concha is a little Panamanian girl with the earnest simplicity of feeling and expression of the stereotyped Latin American child and she has the special habit of saying ""ay-y-y-y"" whenever anything happens. The major occurrence is that she finds her father, who had apparently been drowned when his fishing boat was lost in a storm. Strange rumors lead her to think that he had been taken to one of the Indian islands. And there she does find him, sick, almost unconscious, amnesiac, but receptive to a quick recovery in her presence... It's a very insipid story with some description of the locale.
