From School Library Journal :

Kindergarten-Grade 3-- Captain Snap is something of a hermit. One day, the curious children who live down the road find him ill, so they generously gather blankets and a pot of stew for him. When they return, they see that his house is full of wonderful creations--toys, sculpture, and items of interior decoration--which he has created from found "junk." After that, the children and the captain enjoy a cordial relationship, as he provides a wonderful playground for them with his recycled junk. A familiar tale about kindness to an elderly, contankerous neighbor, this story is set apart both by its text, which reads well aloud, and by its illustrations. The technique of crayon on blackened canvas gives the effect of a woodcut; the primitive style gives the feeling of work done by children themselves, as do the flat primary colors. The double-page spreads have the detail of Grandma Moses, with the washed-out quality of a seaside community, where even wealth would not keep the paint on the buildings. The saltiness of the story comes through the pages, both in the dialect of the narration and the texture of the pictures. A wonderful experience for both readers and viewers. --Ruth K. MacDonald, Purdue University Calumet, Hammond, Ind.

From Publishers Weekly :

In this tender twist on a familiar theme, a neighborhood curmudgeon--"thin and mean and bent and bitter"--is vivified by youngsters' ministrations; Sewall's vibrant wax-resist pictures add much zip. Ages 4-8.
