A rollicking investigation of cause and effect by the Caldecott medalist. "This, undoubtedly, will delight kids with its eloquent plot. [Macaulay's] art . . . is this time flushed with color and zaniness, demonstrating a vaudevillian's canny timing with a sensational round of rapid-fire action." -- Publishers Weekly
