BLACK AND WHITE

KIRKUS REVIEW

I can't see this -- it's a tour de force that doesn't come off. A trick book for which the lame reason would be no reason at all to small fry. In 27 pictures by Charles G. Show, and a far-fetched text, the story is told of the black man who spurned everything not wholly black, until a snow storm left a white snow lady in his house, and he fell in love with her and they were married and lived happily ever after. A meet little juvenile problem of miscegenation Humer far-fetched. And definitely not geared to picture book age sense of fun, as I know it.
