KIRKUS REVIEW

Surrounded by the awesome beauty of the Maine Coast, the simple life of the fishing folk, what more does a man need at the start of each day than a ""penny and a periwinkle""? Say, the fisherman, believes this with all his heart and no description of the exciting city, no temptation of long white cars or pockets full of money can sway him. Miss Aldridge chooses the poetic form to demonstrate the simple philosophy of the old New England Yankee and Ruth Robbins appealingly etches it in our thoughts with sturdy illustrations that evoke the joy of each sunrise, the pleasure of making a catch, the quiet sunset and a man's inner contentment.
