From School Library Journal:

Grade 1-4. In this jaunty tale for beginning readers, first published in 1985 (Macmillan; o.p.), Luther is at first tricked into assisting Dr. Miracle, a phony medicine man; but later, the youngster succeeds in foiling the would-be fraud. Children will empathize with the boy, tempted to earn easy money, who slowly figures out the truth and what he should do. Christian's folksy telling takes the time to evoke a frontier setting and concludes in a nicely rounded fashion. Jenny's illustrations for this new edition, though, are clumsy and undistinguished. Though more colorful than the original pictures by Ib Ohlsson, they are not as successful at matching the humor or the lively goings-on of the text. If your library owns the original, skip this version. If not, this marginal edition still warrants consideration for Christian's clever, accessible story.?Marilyn Taniguchi, Santa Monica Public Library, CA
