KIRKUS REVIEW

Another gala fantasy with its cheek full of tongue, by one of the best in the business. This short tail tale is the story of Professor McWhinney and his personal account of cross-country travels on a bicycle-an unusual jaunt because of the delightful buoyancy of the Professor's ""Z-Gas"" with which the balloon tires were filled. Certainly this is a diverting manner to travel -- zooming several feet above the ground, scaring above bridges, swooping down to rescue movie queens, tight-rope riding across the Grand Canyon. Throughout the Professor persists in fastidious understatement for which his creator in well known. Light but ripe for chuckles. Inimitable pictures.
