KIRKUS REVIEW

Everyone has had the experience that George and William had, -- an ecstatic return to a beloved spot, only to find a sense of anti-climax, of boredom. This is the story of two small boys, who found once more that there were things to see, things to do, and that it was all a question of one's own vision and point of view. Just how deeply this parable will carry over to younger readers is a question. Is there enough in the rather slight plot to stimulate further thought? Fact and fantasy blended.
