Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 5-7-- An interesting collection of strange-but-true stories that will amuse and amaze readers. A blind driver being helped by a drunk passenger, a policeman who locked himself up, and a near-king of the United States are just a few of the characters whose tales are related. Wulffson divides the book into nine categories, the themes of which stretch from transportation to the weather. The short selections are well constructed and will keep readers turning pages. Black-and-white pen-and-ink drawings add to the humor and appeal of the narratives. However, the lack of documentation is a real weakness; all stories are said to be true, but nowhere are the sources cited. --Kenneth E. Kowen, Atascocita Middle School Library, Humble, TX junior high up
