From School Library Journal:

Grade 1-3 A story based on an event that occurred in Boston in 1919. Patrick McGonnigal O'Brien loved molasses. One day he is sent to the store by his mother to fill the empty molasses pail; just as he reaches the store, the huge storage tank explodes and fills the street with molasses. Patrick goes home covered with molasses from head to toe. Of course, a street running full of molasses is too tall a tale for his mother to believe, so Patrick is scrubbed and sent to bed in disgrace. When Papa comes home similarly decorated, all is forgiven, and Patrick has finally found the limit of his molasses tolerance. Uniformly gray pictures with little detail scattered throughout make this look like a poor choice for reading aloud but the subject matter is unusual, and children will relate to poor Patrick's inability to get his mother to believe him. An adequate selection for those just beginning chapter books. Candy Colborn, Cottonwood Creek Elementary School, Englewood, Colo.
