KIRKUS REVIEW

The fact that Bobby Douglas, the 16-month, Japanese-American son of the author has been nicknamed as the title indicates, pretty well sets the tone for this slightly mad, if generally hilarious travelogue a trois. Mr. Douglas whose My Brother was an Only Child was a bestseller and who has warned against putting one's faith in ked, bus drivers, makes a three-month trip to the South Seas and Japan, the setting for an outrageous assortment of mishaps, strange occurrences and just plain bits of nonsense. His style carries one along with joyous rapidity, punctuated by certain references to bodily functions and sex, which he manages to savor without being ulgar about it. In view of his uniform disapproval of planes, trains, ships and hotels, he is hardly the travel agent's friend, but the freshness of the book will dear him alike to wayfarers and stay-at-homes.
