KIRKUS REVIEW

He moved next door last Thursday/He's new to my hometown/I'm afraid to go and meet him/That big boy Lozo Brown."" So begins a long rumination, in sprightly verse, of the imagined terrors of a new boy--brought to life in huge, bared-teeth ferocity in Schwartz's charming, stylish illustrations, where the hapless narrator repeatedly escapes Lozo in spite of the urgings of his more sensible mother. At last he ventures forth--only to discover that Lozo is a meek and friendly kindred spirit after all. A satisfyingly humorous exaggeration of a common phenomenon.
