KIRKUS REVIEW

An idea as fresh as a newborn babe- this collection of cliches as old as the hills (at any rate the Bible). Separating the wheat from the chaff, editor Valentine has culled some four baker's dozen along with their variant versions as changes have been rung on them. Each old chestnut, hot from the firs, sports a full page illustration. These are by James L. Mackey, clear as a bell and gay as a grig. A labor of love, a pleasant pastime, or a corrective for all Arbuthnots.
