KIRKUS REVIEW

Again a book that -- from vocabulary angle -- would be difficult to read to themselves, but which this 6-9 age group would like read aloud, and the enchanting three color illustrations would make even younger children want to hear the story about the ninopin that was thrown into New York Harbor by the charwoman and of how he got back again to the nursery across the sea. It has its funny moments and its delightful moments -- and its moments of occasional drag. Jack Ninepins should be a good companion to Punch and Pinocohic.
