Review:

"Lynd Ward's magnificent drawings have a fine sweep and power; at the same time they are drawn with real understanding of childhood."--The New York Times

"There is just enough humanizing in the pictures . . . to maintain the human spirit of the story and lead to its message: 'Each to his own place, little brother.'"--New York Herald Tribune
