This should have more sense of adventure than it has in the telling. For 12-year old David had an unusual summer on his uncle's isolated seaside farm in South Carolina. His buddy was Jerry, a Negro boy, and they shared a series of interesting-to-humorous fishing trips, climaxed by a bad storm and an escape from an alligator. There's lack of suspense in the telling however, and the end result is light, one-track recording of one event after another. Competent line drawings by Cheslie d'Andrea.
