KIRKUS REVIEW

Big Joe, Little Joe, Babe, Uncle Peter and Miss Hans move out of the Satevepost category to book form in a succession of episodes woven into a more or less unified whole. Big Joe is a Canadian wheat farmer, who, in spite of poverty, tries to do his best for his motherless children, with the aid of liquor making -- and drinking -- Uncle Pete, whose methods are not always orthodox, and Miss Hans, whose mind works faster than the men's. Unaffected, sentimental stories:- they get out a crop under the eyes of a sheriff; they acquire a cow; they see the King and Queen; Babe gets three dresses for her seventh birthday; Uncle Pete signs the pledge; they find a colt and end a feud; they overrule government seizure of land and Uncle Pete comes out ahead, etc. etc.
