KIRKUS REVIEW

The war left too many children like 10-year old Margitka in Hungary, too thin and pale of face. Through the good offices of the Red Cross, she is given a chance to spend a summer in Switzerland, a summer that brings her not only health and happiness, but deepening understanding of the basic oneness of people, whether the Swiss, untouched by war, or the Hungarians too deeply marked. There is story here- incident and character. Margitka, by her patience and love, brings the best gift of all to the family she visited, in winning the youngest child to the first steps in overcoming a handicap. There is mutual respect between grown-ups and children, a warm picture of wholesome family life, a glimpse of how other people are living today.
