Review quote

"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"
