KIRKUS REVIEW

Theatricals, though of a different nature, figure again in Lee Wyndham's latest story, for while Golden Slipper and Slipper Under Glass were about ballet, these are some funny doings about a small boy's efforts, with an ostrich and a flea circus to get his grandmother out of bankruptcy. When Grandma Randall is threatened with eviction from her home in New Jersey, Binkie decides to capitalize on his dead grandfather's generosity to theatre people and advertises in the Billboard for them please to repay some of their loans. Action is aipped in the bud when they are sent George, a trained ostrich- but resourceful Binkie makes a go of things until George helps capture a bank robber, the reward for which makes the Randalls solvent, again. Frothy by possible.
