KIRKUS REVIEW

Two children (and a pet turtle) take the China Clipper from San Francisco to Hongkong. This story of the trip answers many of the questions that inquiring youngsters might ask about the hourly events on a giant clipper, the hours on shore at various romantic ports, and how it feels to travel that way. There is one other book in the field -- Timmy Rides the China Clipper by Carol May (Whitman --see page 279--$1.50). They seem, in a sense to supplement each other, although given the choice, I'd vote for this one as more comprehensive, and better written.
