KIRKUS REVIEW

Working from the theory that children will enjoy having handed back to them the same quality of work of which they themselves are capable, author and artist have crawled out and whipped off their respective efforts. The bland text (about a pump-in who is enthralled with being a Jack-o'-Lantern) is set down in script which stands an acute example of poor penmanship. Children who are doing their best when they struggle to set down two dots for eyes, one for a nose and a line for a mouth inside circle, deserve the artist's and author's best,-- not hastily scribbled imitations of children's creations.
