KIRKUS REVIEW

For the very young who liked The Busy Man (1951- P. 432) -- here he is again, a nice but inconsequential day behind him, and nighttime ahead. To a symphony of noises around the house, of owls and squirrels and train whistles outside, he settles down with a lighted fire, a game of checkers, and ultimately a cosy bed. Perhaps this is aiming for the Noisy Book market -- and the author's colored pictures successfully convey many of the sounds- but somehow it doesn't come off with quite the same direct impact.
