KIRKUS REVIEW

Under the appellation of all of these small (4 (apple) x 5 (apple)) books, by an English author who writes and draws like Beatrix Potter, are about the same set of toy animals and their young owner Timothy. Stripey the zebra, Getup the giraffe, Little Mut the dog, Woeful the monkey and Gumpa the bear are lodged on a shelf above Timothy's bed. A cozy narration and even more cozily pictured nursery and garden escapades follow them along such worthy byways as hunting for raspberries for Timothy's birthday, or into such traps as a loss of spots while playing Robinson Crusoe- or even gaining unnecessary ones while faking a case of measles. Small folk for small fry, and a diminitive price as well make these appealing merchandise.
