Review Quotes




There is just enough humanizing in the pictures--the intimation of a face on the tower, fog forming a grasping hand--to maintain the human spirit of the story and lead to its message: 'Each to his own place, little brother.' --New York Herald Tribune

Such a picture-story book as Mrs. Swift and Mr. Ward have made between them will not only be deeply enjoyed by boys and girls ... but will help to cultivate in them the seeing eye, and make them sensitive to the beauty which they can so easily find around them. --The New York Times
