KIRKUS REVIEW

Picture book format with too much text for the picture story book age, so try in this section. The sun-bright colors of the Caribbean (Virgin Island setting)- are reproduced in flat colors, good drawing, text in dark green which somehow goes with the rest. Henry is a little dark skinned native boy, and the story of his daily round, of his aspirations to go out with his father in the fishing boat, and of what happens when he finally goes, is told with the lilt of the islanders' language, and a confident feel of background, and use of the details children like to know about distant places.
