KIRKUS REVIEW

Suave, sophisticated nonsense which shows up parents and wises up their progeny on a variety of things, proving -- conclusively -- that mother doesn't always know best, but is generally misguided, misinformed and a little silly. Parental fallacies and fallibilities about Santa Claus, culture, tonsils, eternal verities, piano playing, smoking, drinking, sex, slang, washing, education, and so on. The Whitney Darrow, Jr. illustrations should be just the right trimming.
