KIRKUS REVIEW

On the shaky foundations of words said by children Ruth Krauss has evolved inconsequential flights of fancy. They they are not stories, nor are they verses. They are passages which wander -- about a little girl turned into a queen by a good fairy, about a boy who flies in a little ship, breaks his leg and is taken to the hospital -- all in language somewhat like Gertrude Stein. An attempt to be childlike achieves Maurice Sendak's illustrations are unsatisfying -- not at all up to his delightful Little Bear. Side sewn and reinforced.
