KIRKUS REVIEW

Gasparino, small son of Italy, is plagued as a foreigner by the American children in the block. They nickname him Macaroni, and his life is miserable until he discovers the thoroughly American origin of the name. He finally wins a place in the esteem of the neighborhood by a courageous act. Americanization story for the youngsters, with some factual material about making of violins. Good pictures.
