KIRKUS REVIEW

I like Mabel Hunt's children because there are almost never any goody- goodies among them. This time young John, son of printer Thomas Fling, has a good many hard lessons to learn before he finds himself. Against the background of old Boston, the story is told of how the first American collection of rhymes passed on to American children by John's grandmother, Madame Elizabeth Goose, came into the heritage of American childhood. Lots of incident, likeable characters, good setting.
