KIRKUS REVIEW

La Jolla, the lovely seaside town where Max Miller lives, is the subject of this record, written in simple, gentle prose, with almost a child-like quality in its unhurried detail. He writes of his good life in terms of charming little episodes, of his attempt to train a sea lion, of lobster fishing, the rabbit on the front lawn, the ingenious and ingenuous Perky, dramatic Mrs. Billings relentless pursuit, his daily patrol of the each dune and curve of the beach and the collection of common, everyday beach life occurrences with the unusual people who called La Jolla their own. There's underlying humor, mild subtle fare with a touch of whimsy, for the audience that enjoyed Max Miller's earlier books. California market especially.
