KIRKUS REVIEW

Eight South African stories, charmingly told, appear in this collection illustrated by Elton Fox. Dealing with animals and men of the jungle, the stories possess humor and shrewd observation. In most cases they either dramatize a characteristic trait or explain the origin of a particular tendency, either physical or emotional. Engrossing, often humorous, and refreshingly uncluttered, these stories should appeal to children of reading and pre-reading age.
