KIRKUS REVIEW

This is Barbara and Geoffrey's journal, Geoffrey who is six, and Barbara, his mother, while Geoffrey's father -- a correspondent -- is in the Pacific on a five months' job. These are the conversations, the letters to father -- and from him, the bright moments -- and the bewildered ches, of every day. Geoffrey's questions about father, and war, and death, -- the fears of a noticing six year old; the circus and his birthday party; his little brother Johnny whom he spoils when he can; occasional protest and misbehaviour; and finally, father's return.
