KIRKUS REVIEW

The less young he grows, the more knowledge he shows -- of the quiddities and qualities? that make the world what it is today for metrically minded observer who is as amazed as he is despairing. The yesteryears that were better, the TV that is a growing horror, ballpoint pens, picnics, the ugly dying of language and a mother tongue that is being mistreated, -- these are paced by the indulgence of being a grandfather, the tricks that hearing can play, a quick tour of travel, a survey of foods and animals, a sad for fellow creatures who are the citizenry of today. Juggling, playing with, handling words to his whim and will, Our Mr. Nash sure can lash.
