KIRKUS REVIEW

If a kite can fly in the sky, so can I,"" says Basil the fox to his mole friend Harry, and despite successive failures with an umbrella, feathers, a winged bicycle, and a giant catapult, he keeps making the same comparison with dandelion seeds, crows, ducks, and a grasshopper. ""See how the helicopter flies,"" are Basil's last words--after that machine has towed him to shore following his last failed attempt to fly. Firmin too just goes doggedly on, in this fourth uninspired easy reader about a totally undistinguished pair.
