KIRKUS REVIEW

Bonifacius, the unusual lizard-like creature, is back (Bonifacius the Green, 1962, p. 7, J-7), but he remains in the background while his son Little Bonnie enters more actively into the lives of a few of the village children. Bonnie helps Lisa learn her multiplication tables; he causes havoc when he quietly, cross-eyedly a stuffed animal exhibit at school, and on and on he goes, interfering in his not very imaginative way. He's not a very captivating creature; the fantasy is sluggish; the humor heavy. This all goes to prove that two Bonifaciuses are not better than one; the doubleweight is a strain on a feather light imaginative world.
