KIRKUS REVIEW

Much better known under the original title, The Three Mulla-Mulgars, this is the story of the wanderings and adventures of three monkeys, Thumb, Thimble and Nod. Lots of us knew it in childhood; some of us discovered it just growing into adult life. And for the intense and imaginative young reader who enjoys word-play, who is not piqued by mysterious shadowy meetings that are lost in waterfall spray, and for those who see beauty in the twilight foliage- here is still a book to enthrall. But it is not a book for every child- nor every adult.
