KIRKUS REVIEW

A mean and dishonest miller who steals a little flour from each customer's sack goes too far when he steals more than a little from his best customer, Cambridge University. The dean who notices the deception is intimidated by miller Simkin's aggressive self-defense; but next time he sends the University's wheat to the miller with two bright and high-spirited students. Simkin has a few tricks up his sleeve, but the students foil him in the end--after a wild night with a runaway horse, a stick-swinging wife, and much crashing about in the dark. Lorenz' cartoons, all gestures and glowers and boisterous body language, keep the hijinx cracking and the story bounding alone.
