KIRKUS REVIEW

This is fun. It's more of a word game for group use than a story. The text and pictures follow the adventures of a New York boy who received an invitation to a birthday party in Florida. "Fortunately a friend loaned him an airplane. Unfortunately the motor exploded. Fortunately there was a parachute in the airplane. Unfortunately there was a hole in the parachute..." and so it goes until quite fortunately, he made it to the party. Solid, uncluttered illustrations in the bold color pages are excellent. These alternate with dull, grayish black and white spreads which are not so successful. Nevertheless, the book should spark imaginative, endless juvenile imitation.
