KIRKUS REVIEW

A Manhattan fantasy for six to ten year olds brings Papa Luigi to New York from Italy with the 90-year-old , Bessle and Alfred. He seems unable to make a living as a puppetmaster, so puts them away in a box under his bed, and sells ice cream instead. But the neighborhood children love them, and one child saves Luigi from eviction through them. However the puppets have a life of their own; they wander the city and see refreshing and different.
