KIRKUS REVIEW

These Hogan titles, particularly the Nicodemus ones, have found their place and any additional title is sure of a substantial sale. I like them. My query in regard to this one is directed towards the gauging of the ignorance of the small child of this age in regard to the ""facts of life"". It doesn't seem quite convincing for Nicodemus (who must be round about six or seven anyhow) to be so innocent. However, the market for which the book is intended is younger than that, and perhaps this way of introducing them to the story of birth may meet many parents' approval.
