KIRKUS REVIEW

Written by the late Capote at age 22 as a gift for an aunt, this is an innocuous, very faintly charming short story about a boy and his parents leaving the boy's childhood West Virginia farm home ("a trip. . .further than I'd ever taken before") and leaving the boy's grandparents behind. Oversize pages; ten sometimes highly striking--and sometimes saccharine--color illustrations (by Barry Moser) on glossy photographic paper, each of them detachable from the page. Providing at best a minor if affectionate footnote to the author's work, the story first appeared in Redbook magazine for December of 1986.
