This is a well-worn but sympathetic and engaging eight-page pamphlet with stiff covers. I love Biro's illustrations. The best feature of them here, I believe, lies in the eagle's facial expressions. He is frustrated in the net, happy to be freed, apparently menacing when he takes the man's hat, and perhaps admonitory as he flies away. Once a hearer or reader knows the story, it becomes clear that the last expression was one of concern that the man follow after him--and so avoid the imminent fall of the wall. Now I have found nine of the twelve booklets in this series.
