Steig tries to show how different the world was when he was a kid, in the 1910’s. It is entertaining and educational. I wish he went into the hats more, instead of just saying “there was no such thing as a hatless human being” and giving a few illustrations, but he does capture the overall mood well. With an adult, it will get kids thinking. Without, I’m not sure.
