Publisher's Weekly Review

Lois Lenski's Mr. Small appears in two stories first published in the 1930s, now available in full-color editions. The Little Sailboat stars Captain Small and his dog, Tinker, who sail and fish and swim; after a full day, they head home, racing a storm to shore. As Pilot Small in The Little Airplane, the star flies a small propeller-driven airplane, does loops and turns and even makes an emergency landing. The landscapes pictured here reflect the relatively unpopulated vistas of the 1930s, and Lenski's artwork still delights with its bold forms and classic simplicity. (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
