KIRKUS REVIEW

A nonsense tale with a bit of folk legend quality, in the story of a man who didn't like to do dishes, and of how he let them accumulate until nature provided an answer in torrential rains. But he'd learned his lesson, and thereafter proved he could be a good housewife. The absurdity of application to the home scene will tickle the risibles of even the very young fry. Pictures by Barbara Cooney in three colors have her inimitable casual sophistication that children like.
