KIRKUS REVIEW

The Spider's Palace and The Innocent Voyage (High Wind in Jamaica as it is now known) proved conclusively that Richard Hughes had an affinity for children and an ability to get into their moods and to understand their reactions. He spurns sentimentality; his inconsequentiality goes over particularly well with an adult story teller who appreciates his brand of humor. Some of these new stories have a streak of cruelty in them, as do his other books, but many children like that (whether it is good for them or not). His abrupt endings, his unpredictable imagination mark him as unique.
