After various postponements this story reported last Fall (10/1-page 498), is actually being published. The story is tops, though one can't help but question the plausibility of some of its incidents and some of the characters. But it holds the interest from first page to last. Two children from among the 150 winners of a cereal company contest arrive in New York a day ahead of schedule, and find themselves on their own. They ""do"" New York from Ellis Island to Harlem, from the East River to Hell's Kitchen. They see how the other half lives, they make friends with all sorts and conditions of strangers, they escape pursuit and discovery, making it hard for those who would be their friends, and they have a glorious time.
