KIRKUS REVIEW

A reprint of a book that, the publishers claim, once ranked high in children's hearts. I confess to never having known the book at all, but to finding it -- in spite of its seeming a trifle dated both in style and content -- decidedly amusing reading. A Boston newsboy falls into a hole through which he drops to Canton, China, where, astute ""business man"" that he is, he disposes of his Boston and New York papers at $5.00 apiece, and starts new adventures.
