KIRKUS REVIEW

A reprint of a story that first appeared only in a limited edition published by the Countryman Press. A humorous story of a boy who tried to find a way of life that would bring him freedom from the fear that the Fool Killer would get him -- and in his search found flaws in every way that opened up to him. It is a tender story, with an underlying philosophy -- an allegory with a bit of folklore quality. With the tremendous success of The Devil and Daniel Webster as a forerunner, this should prove another successful book for that much desired ""plus sale.
