JOURNEY CAKE, HO!

KIRKUS REVIEW

A rollicking, rhythmic mountain folktale tells of the wonderful way in which Johnny the bound out boy chased the Journey Cake all the way home and brought all the lost back to his keepers. And Robert McCloskey combines his talents- in big blue and brown drawings-with Ruth Sawyer's gift for words to make it really go. When the trouble comes to the old woman Merry and her husband Grumble, and they must send Johnny away, his run home after Merry's parting gift and with pig, cow, sheep and chickens following, will have you panting at the end.
