KIRKUS REVIEW

It's instructive about daily life in a very different environment (a West Indian Island) and it has a moral (responsibility begins at home and it can be fun) which means that it's more wholesome than palatable. Ebbie is the little boy, and his excitement at being allowed to go fishing along with the men of the village is matched by his disappointment that sometimes he must still be left at home with his mother and sister to attend to domestic chores. But then several emergencies arrive and Ebbie has the satisfaction of being the one to take over and handle them.
