KIRKUS REVIEW

The author of Homer the Tortoise presents a Coronation item with a broad combination of fantasy, reality and gay co-incidents of British family life. Lettice, Dulcibella and Mouse Brown-Homer's young mistresses, are on visit to Aunt Lobelia in London. Homer's astounding deeds, in which the three girls are equally involved, include meeting a professor, mating with Florence, a turtle owned by an old maid who in turn gets to know the professor, etc. etc.- and finally traipsing out into the Coronation procession to greet the Queen-who accepts Homer's and Florence's two offspring for the young prince and princess., More for the Thomas than the Hudson.
