""Man of the Family" is everything that "Little Britches" was - a heart-warming, frank, completely delightful narrative. Some readers may even like it better' - "San Francisco Chronicle".'Mr. Moody remembers, and can put on paper, the terrifying passion of a small boy's heart, where there is no routine, and every victory and every disappointment is oversize and overwhelming' - "New York Herald Tribune". 'A heart-warming book..."Little Britches'" fierce loyalty to his mother is matched only by his practical consideration for his brothers and sisters' - "Christian Science Monitor".
