With a few tiny pictures and an equally sparse text, the Hobans have once again demonstrated their startling ability to penetrate the secret world of children and to reflect it in perfect likeness. The event they portray is a simple one -- sister and brother at play with no adult in sight. Firmly entrenched in Daddy's shoes, the little boy becomes a giant who can gobble people, tear paper with his feet and evoke unusual powers from Maxie "the Mysterious Protein Dog". Adults who find children's nonsense sayings and wild imagery pointless and silly will respond in kind to this book. No, this is strictly for kids both the toddler and overgrown varieties who, like the Hobans, can really get with it.
