KIRKUS REVIEW

 Tantrum time, followed by sulks: Danny's in the toybox and won't come out--never, for the rest of his life. One by one, members of his family offer lures, orders, bribes; then they come back disguised: a ``doctor'' and even the ``Fire Brigade'' try to cajole him--until ``the Old Firefighter'' (Grandma) suggests, sensibly enough, that they should try leaving Danny alone--and he realizes that he's no longer mad about whatever it was (he's forgotten) and comes out. This doesn't have quite the comic genius of Steig's Spinky Sulks (1988), but it's still right on target. Greder's large, informal pictures extend the humor and the family interaction. (Picture book. 3-7)
