KIRKUS REVIEW

Another quintet of minitales, filled out by the blimpy shapes of Marshall's inseparable hippopotami. During the course of one day George learns to encourage Martha at her tightrope walking (a typical Marshall stunt), not to tell icky stories at the table (she can retaliate with worse), and that if snooping won't get him a look in her diary, neither will a polite request. The last two tales are impishly paired: first, George scares Martha with a BOO and waits on edge all day for her revenge. . . and she gets it that night at the amusement park in the darkened tunnel of love. "'Have mercy!' screamed George." Another winner.
