The first section of the book took some getting used to with what I ll describe as some brutal absurdity Once I got used to the characterizations common to the earlier 20th century a la Three Stooges Red Skelton etc the story turned largely away from pathetic protagonists into Homeric heroines It was ultimately an uniuely narrated caper that I found enjoyable

For me this book was a hodgepodge of different tones and manners Some work uite better than others I was really bored during multiple episodes where all the people of the town or all the dogs would have a great noisy ruckus The scene with all the hunting dogs biting each other was dull in the way that only empty frenetic activity can be Maybe I should be clear that a kid might like this part fine This is probably pitched younger than most of the kids novels that I get perfectly well caught up in Other sections of this book I was indeed caught upEpisodes with danger and adventure I liked better Some of the danger was surprisingly real for a book with so much childish whimsy When the last adversary had some aspects that were evil in a very un whimsical way I had to look up whether the book was written during the war It was and there seems to be some Hitler commentary going on there That was OK just jarring in a book with a lot of material that s much juvenile That darker stuff was heavy enough that I d wish space was given to deal with it So I d wish to send this book back for a substantial rewrite Oh well Thanks still to the NYRB children s collection for bringing it to my attention
