Illustrated by Miguel Covarrublas who has been to the very tropical forests which formed the setting of this superb romance, and he has made three panoramas - or more accurately, three sections of one panorama, which - lithographed in full color - make the binding and the end papers. Inside the book are full pages in color and many black and whites. It promises to be one of the sensational gift books of 1936. (Kirkus Reviews)
