KIRKUS REVIEW

Cartoonist Jack Kent mixes a parody fairyland and a modern moral in this tale of how an undersized giant Dooly reaches his proper height in the course of a confrontation with the child-eating Snortsnoot monster. Both Dooly's ineffectual attempts to scare the village children with his practice FEE FI FO FUM's and the Snortsnoot's nonplussed expression as he finds himself dwarfed by an expanding Dooly are frankly, accessibly humorous, but this one-dimensional hybrid offers no visual or verbal sustenance for other little kids to grow on.
