KIRKUS REVIEW

<p>Harrison was a fashion-first type. He carted his open umbrella through thick and thin, rain and shine, outdoors and in. Soon, he had his contemporaries doing the same. Parents began begging for the sight of small faces perpetually hidden behind open umbrellas. At just the point where the pages blossom with colorful bumbershoots, Harrison, a Man-of-the-Hour and many a whim, turns up minus umbrella coolly casting a spinning, whistling yo-yo while his collected friends undergo the birth of a new desire. This pokes nice fun at junior faddists and guys parental concern for a quick laugh. Brightly colored, simply drawn illustrations have caught the mood of the story.</p>
