KIRKUS REVIEW

Parts of it are very beautiful; parts of it seem set in a wrong key; the whole leaves an impression of an elaborate fable, meant more for adults than for children, but assuredly a book to be introduced to children by adults. It is the story of the training in loneliness of the ""youngest camel"" -- and of the distractions and temptations that almost destroyed him, until he learned that he must be polite and modest.
