KIRKUS REVIEW

Unusual and not wholly credible story of a bull fighter's small son who is spirited out of wartorn Spain, just at the time of his gallant father's death -- and taken to America by a Red Cross worker. He's an irritating young person, given to lordly assumption that he alone has nothing to learn, and he balks at the one thing his newfound comrade, Peter, could teach him -- a bull fighter has no need to swim. His pride has a mild jolt when the Great Dane he has tried to teach to act as a bull in the ring doesn't measure up to expectations. But the story ends with the Americans still playing up to him.
