KIRKUS REVIEW

A light-hearted story of San Francisco's first cable car, its agonies of fear as it faced the long hill, the encouragement of its father, the horse-drawn car, and its mother, the mule-car, its pride of achievement, its despair during the earthquake. And finally its happy tour of the modern city. Joey is kin to Little Toot and other humanized machinery and Mr. MacCabe has pictured him and San Francisco scenes airily, while Mrs. MacCabe's story has a certain youthful dash. Not only regional.
