KIRKUS REVIEW

....but Peter Mayer goes off into the wild blue yonder to develop his or perhaps he didn't really have one at all. Despite the engaging drawings with one color wash- by Andre Francois- it won't be easy to hold small listeners through the tenuous meanderings of the free verse. There's a germ of a thought here-as Herbert the bird soars up high to seek a friend with whom to share an idea- and finally comes back to earth to settle- for a moment or more- in a home just looking for an idea. Call it nonsense if you will, but it isn't the sort of silly nonsense a child can seize upon. And only rather sophisticated parents will be persuaded that their children are sophisticated too.
