KIRKUS REVIEW

Two orphans from a Home are suddenly invited to go to live with an uncle in South America. The story leads one, through the children's experiences, into a clear cut picture of the country and the people, but it is first and last a story, not a vehicle for imparting geographic information. Patty and Petey are normal kids, good models for the Kurt Wiese illustrations, and the imaginative concept of the butterfly as symbolic of the new home in Buenos Aires is not overstrained. Good job.
