Charming, as always.

I was a bit surprised to find that the book was actually a full-length piece; I was expecting shorter, less connected essays. Oddly, it was a bit of a disappointment--his characters lend themselves more to short anecdotes. Indeed, Bemelmans may be at his best in the short form.

Still, lesser Bemelmans is still much better than most anything by many others.
