THE GOLDEN BASKET

KIRKUS REVIEW

Bemelmans' Hansi is one of the bright spots of the past two years in juveniles, and I feel that he fills a very special need. His books have so much -- and such entertaining and descriptive -- illustration that the text is a temptation to the beginner and eggs him on, and the young listener is able to add on his own through the aid of the pictures. This is a more advanced story than the other -- even grown ups learn a good deal of Bruges and the life there in this story of the children who went with their father and stayed at The Golden Basket inn. The special quality of naiveté and sophistication combined make Bemelmans' pictures, perfectly reproduced, a joy in themselves.
