KIRKUS REVIEW

Jeptha, a nice little boy, though lonely since his father's death, is not quite prepared for the strange group which rents the house near his family in Maine Besides John, a boy his age, with an English accent, there is a staff of servants, a beautiful actress, and a cheetah. Jeptha's involvement with the family finally leads to a marriage between his mother and John's father which promises to perpetuate the colorful and compassionate relationship between the two boys and the docile animal. Marguerite Vance captures the fascination a lonely child might feel for novel and glamorous strangers in this cheerful and tender story.
