KIRKUS REVIEW

A charming three season story of a vegetable garden conveying both in euphonic text and delightfully detailed illustrations, the fascinating seed to salad process....Bright holiday pictures of sand, sea and pails and shovels and an economical, simple text for young beachgoers tells the story of a glorious day at the beach....Pantaloon, the poodle, unusually fond of pastry eventually gets his just desserts in a fanciful tale gaily illustrated with puffy-faced baker and poodle....At last the Tom and Jerry illustrations are sharply colored and the story of the little mice's triumph over the cat stands by itself in humor and appeal.... Lovely pictures for the story of a pleasant playground day in which the first, and often bewildering principle of joint possession and play is introduced. Perfect in priming the kindergarten set for the playground adventure.
