BOOK REVIEW

THE LITTLE DRUMMER BOY by Ezra Jack Keats
Released: Sept. 30, 1968

"Collage that's characteristically Keats, drapery that's almost El Greco, detail and design that draw the eye to essentials, expressive skies —a glowing entity of certain appeal to children who know the song, with a right-hand piano accompaniment appended."

Released: Sept. 15, 1969

"And you are glad that Peter, who's shown he can stand up for himself, tricks the bullies and gets away with his prize."
Goggles is not Glasses for Peter nor, like earlier books in the series, centered on a singular catalytic incident on the way to growing up and thus capable of broad application: the motorcycle goggles Peter finds and manages to keep from the neighborhood bullies — with the help of friend Archie, dog Willie and a ruse — might have been anything attractive to kids and the episode might have happened yesterday and might recur tomorrow.

BOOK REVIEW

BOOK REVIEW
