KIRKUS REVIEW

It's a dozen stories--episodes really-- about young Dudley Pippin and his friends in the city. They're the kind that little boys are apt to tell about themselves with unrestrained imaginative detail but not much regard for narrating a cohesive tale. Some bits hit just right--a policeman crying in the park because he's lost, or a witch in a coonskin hat. On the whole, though, this book does not succeed in defining the boy's viewpoint as August Explains did.
