KIRKUS REVIEW

When a distrustful old woman gives Moon Blossom a gold penny for helping her, the fortune of the little girl's poor, sampan- dwelling-family improves. Suddenly there is business, and the family chugs daily back and forth the great harbor carrying freight and some passengers. Moon Blossom feels guilty about the coin, and searches for the woman, fearing that she made a mistake. The gold piece is merely some foil covered candy, and the old lady, the proud possessor of a rare candy recipe. A certain charm does surround the tale which is low pressure all the way.
