KIRKUS REVIEW

Even if every youngster had an Aunt Rosie, who makes visits miserable by fawning and fussing and asking for recitations and report cards, he could not seriously identify with Sherman's bucktoothed, bow-tied gawkiness. Perhaps the very ubiquity of Hoff's Sunday comix cliches will make Sherman's change of heart acceptable to some (left at home, he misses Aunt Rosie after all), but this little domestic drama is not one of Hoff's better stories and, as for his cartoon style, familiarity breeds indifference.
