Some new and some old in this latest collection of ding-toed verse dwelling on the family group. Solitary Lays by an ignored parent in the face of infant wiliness -- manfully accepting a lapful of child and ice cream cone, prancing capers as he reads the paper, and of course the wal talcum. Then the mighty menaces of the home -- slipping blankets, guests and pats. Quips and cranks and litry pranks, with happy carps for moms and parps. A wonderful gift item.
