KIRKUS REVIEW

If you have an uninhibited imagination (like Miss Krauss). a violet fingerprint can suggest anything--a singer, a dog, an Indian, a cowboy. With pen and ink she turns prints into people or surrounds them with people, tacks on a label, a sentence or a funny poem, and calls it a page. Much of the humor is adult, most of it is lively, offbeat--and pointless, all of it is artistic. Original nonsense that will probably be response-less.
