KIRKUS REVIEW

The insistent adult fable in which four-year old Kiki and her precocious voice disrupt her normal family, Kiki's talent is exploited commercially and Kiki permitted unbridled license if only she will sing and learn more exacting numbers. European triumphs bring further indulgences. Then the singer whose voice she copies dies and Kiki's imitativeness dries up and she returns to her proper place as a little girl with no tyrannical powers....A possible interpretation- power in ignorant hands, mob surrender to a unique ability, inevitable chaos? Possibly, but it does not keep it from being a tenuous and often boring tale.
