TERRY'S FERRY by Marion Belden Cook


Email this review


If it hadn't been opening day of the circus Terry would have enjoyed ferrying passengers in his little rowboat. But he wanted to earn a front row seat with the fish he would catch. Terry had barely cast his line out when a succession of people harassed him. The bridge to the Village was out, so before the afternoon ended Terry had conducted a ferry for the balloon man, two trapeze artists, the fat lady, and two midgets. Though Terry's ferrying yielded no fish, it brought him into the circus for a triumphal entry aboard the shoulders of the strong man. The elements here are oft-tried and usually successful:- wish fulfillment, repetition of an incident, incidental humor and accomplishment of an objective.
