KIRKUS REVIEW

From the window of a high-rise apartment, the sky is large, the people small; down below, distances stretch out and proportions reverse. This little exercise in the changing perspectives of city life is stretched out too--Ricky goes to the supermarket with his mother (waits for the light to change, gets a treat from the candy machine) and helps her put his little sister and brother to bed before taking up his post at the window for more sky-watching. Ricky, who tells the ""story,"" is a Negro child, but this has only the artless resemblance to reality to recommend it.
