PETER'S POCKET by Judi Barrett


Email this review


The home-sewn pockets Peter wears pinned to his favorite dungarees and polo shirts provide handy personalized carrying space for his finger puppets, crayons, crumbled cookies and miscellaneous junk of all descriptions, and Julie Noonan's careful pencil renderings of Peter's diversified loot are likely to awaken pack rat instincts even where they have previously been dormant. Needless to say, having the actual pockets would be better than having the book, and a clever Momma could steal the idea and save herself $4.95. Satisfying as the drawings are, it is questionable whether they justify inflating this Woman's Day sort of notion into a trans generational project.
