Good fortune follows bad through a hilarious series of cliff-hanging escapades that lead to a fortunate ending.
One Potato Review
Airplanes and parachutes, tigers and sharks. Fortunately Charlip isn’t commenting on anything more than the wonders of serendipity here in black and white disasters taking turns with colorful near-misses. The suitably named Ned remains a model of self-possession throughout - industrious when he needs to be, complacent when there isn’t any choice. An excellently uncomplicated fable for very young readers.
