KIRKUS REVIEW

The verbal prestidigitation and the devices of period drama that Garfield himself exploits so flamboyantly are turned to comic purpose in a spoofy commotion set in a mediocre boys' school and revolving (dizzingly) around a missing infant. Garfield with his tongue in his cheek is as adept as ever, and what he relinquishes in densely atmospheric suspense he gains in buoyancy and accessibility.
