Reactions and Reviews

This Continued Classic zine follows the team's A Tale of Two Kitties. Terrible tot Nathan (who resembles Vincent) of the earlier story is now eleven and has a loathed toddler sister, Mariah, a terror in her own right. Unhappy and restless, Nathan decides to follow Uncle Devin to Washington D.C. on his own, and without telling anyone except tattling baby sister. Vincent, in a fine high temper, sets out to retrieve his wandering son, leading to adventures for Nathan, Vincent, and Devin. A night spent hiding in a cemetery is particularly eventful: Nathan discovers ghosts are talking to him! As always, this team's observations of children's attitudes is dead-on, perceptive, unsentimental, and highly entertaining. And Vincent's problem of teaching Nathan the caution he'll need to survive, without scaring the wits out of him, is excellently handled. Altogether up to this team's very high standard. [1]
