KIRKUS REVIEW

The story of a Chinese boy who used his head to help his playmates and to win fame for himself. This story has come down as a folk tale for Chinese children and is very charmingly retold in this version for American children. One feels, however, that the adapter has made no attempt to convey the feel of the language of the original, though she has carried over a dramatic sense of Chinese life and customs, which Kurt Wiese has interpreted delightfully in his illustrations on virtually every page, most of them in delicate color.
