KIRKUS REVIEW

The Baron's booty is made up of the 13 daughters of the Duke and Duchess (The Duchess Bakes A Cake, 1955, p. 208- J-84) to be held for ransom. The Duke, however, welcomes the respite. The Baron soon learns why no ransom is forthcoming-- winds up paying the parents to take the girls back, and goes forth on a crusade to settle his nerves. It's a burbling, bouncy, Seussy rhyme and the author's pictures back up a text that small girls (and boys) will enjoy having chanted out.
