This was not a bad first entry in a young adult series. The characters are fairly engaging, there's a bit of action, a bit of poignancy, a bit of good values and a bit of education woven into the story.
Naturally, it's terribly dated, but the book is a good read for any nostalgist and especially any fan of old time radio (or I should say, OLD old time radio, the days before regular programming).
This is an excellent read! I'm a big fan of Christopher Morley and I believe this was the funniest work of his that I've yet read.
It's a rather scathing satire on Prohibition. The story develops into a humorous satire on government control of individual rights and legislating morality, which definitely hits home even today
Excellent collection of humor essays by comedian and actor Robert Benchley. Benchley has a rather dry wit that is reminescent of Woody Allen (back when he was a comedian). Many of the topics are a little dated, but on the whole it is very funny.
