KIRKUS REVIEW

 The little girl introduced in Stina (1989) again visits her grandfather at his Swedish seaside cottage; this time the story is centered on jollying elderly friend ``Stretchit'' out of his birthday doldrums and listening to his seafaring tall tales. Warm but uneventful; still, Anderson's portrayal of affection and her eye for detail and the many nuances of her scenes rival Shirley Hughes's in their skill, charm, and humor. (Picture book. 4-8)
