KIRKUS REVIEW

C'mon now, enough's enough. But maybe the fault is in the over-extension of the series even more than in the over-elaboration of the latest flimsy plot. First off, we're reminded that everyone has a stake in the big tree next door that's home to ghost Georgie's owl friend Miss Olive--the Whittakers because they admire it, cat Herman and Georgie because they play there at night. Then we're put on the alert--neighbor Mr. Snead's wild search for buried treasure is going to somehow threaten the tree. But before that happens Mr. Snead has pockmarked his land with holes, Georgie has tried to stop him (on general principles) with one after another strategem, and--breakthrough!--the Whittakers have come to need a well. So, when a gypsy tells Mr. S. that the treasure is where the owl hoots, Georgie cleverly perches Miss Olive on a shovel in the Whittakers' backyard--and you can figure out most of the rest for yourself. No end of activity, anyhow--in the heavily worked pictures too.
