Praise

Continuing the fast-paced adventures of Francis Alphonse Tucket…Francis creates a stampede, foils a couple of crooks, and finds himself suddenly in charge of two small children. Like Paulsen’s other heroes, Francis meets adversity head-on–and survives."
The Washington Post Book World

"The narrative flow is smooth and uncluttered, the action gritty and realistic, the story thrilling."
