KIRKUS REVIEW

Unlike Rosenblatt's busy inner city neighborhood where Everyone Is Going Somewhere (p. 253, J-70), the people on this little boy's street move slowly, saying ""Go back to sleep, morning. I ain't ready for your early sun."" But there is just as much to look at here--dogs and cats scratching, stretching, sniffing out garbage cans; people snoozing, and yawning; others making deliveries and opening shops; the fruit man pushing a cart with an ""umbrella."" of flies--and McCully's wobbly line drawings, filled in with soft blue and yellow washes, give a pleasantly drowsy cast to all the slow-starting activity.
