KIRKUS REVIEW

There's enchantment and fairy tale surprise to this description of a small house, complete with a garden right in the middle of a big city. A little boy and his dog go through the fence around the garden, open the door and walk in, smell sweet wild wood smoke, see a charming small living room, wonder who made the fire, and for whom are the potatoes baking in the kitchen. Then come the owners, two wild Indians who ask the boy to stay and have dinner with them. And the captivation of the old house is fulfilled by the cartoon effects in Aaron Fine's pictures.
