KIRKUS REVIEW

An easy reading book which offers a beguiling and funny story in language that is simple without being stilted should please youngsters who are accustomed to plunging from the blissful auditory delights of Read Aloud books to the dull plodding rhythms and pointless text of independent beginner books. The story tells of two children who go off to buy mother a birthday present with only a dime between them. The joyous little pranks tiny Davy plays on his older, more worldly little brother and the conglomerate gift they finally present to mother will entertain any child who has ever faced a similar problem.
