An artist who has achieved superb effects in comic and human interest themes and considerable originality in depicting light verse for children has gone far afield in attempting to illustrate the story of creation. The result if unfortunate, if not disastrous. Mr. Galdone's conception of God's handiwork is conspicuously devoid of drama and intensity. His colors are either dull (the Third Day) or strident, (the First). The basic question of visually interpreting mankind's oldest story for children on so grand a scale and through one's private imagery can never even arise since this particular effort is so evidently unappealing.
