KIRKUS REVIEW

Munro Leaf can wrap his pills in the best sugar coating of any juvenile writer today. Manners Can Be Fun and Grammar Can Be Fun may have slid into first base on Ferdinand's tail, but they stayed there on their own. Now, for a year, The Watchbirds have rejoiced the hearts of parents who read The Ladies. Home Journal, and the demand for the collection of new style Cautionary Tales has resulted in this book. Beware, children who qualify under floor pilers, show offs, thumb suckers, wont players, squirmers, sulkers, grabbers, et al, for The Watchbirds will get you if you don't watch out! Nonsense text and pictures -- but the idea gets across.
