KIRKUS REVIEW

The book might have been more aptly entitled ""Baldwin the Muscle-bound Penguin"", for the small bird pictured here is capable of dropping an anchor overboard, and later of rescuing a child from a pond. Baldwin speaks in stilted, abrupt sentences and roams through a full colored, but somewhat cluttered world far from home. Far more winning creatures have wandered from their wild homes into the metropolis-- for example a recent one is Roger Duvoisin's Lonely Veronica (1963, p. 794, J-254).
