'This little fantasy by an Australian develops into a series of human interest stories. All the characters are given a few hours in a world where people can live honestly and simply irrespective of race and social position. They live without war or the fear of it.
'Then the author takes her characters back to the present, so that they can help to build this new world. Miss Chick treats her subject sincerely, idealistically and rather sentimentally.'
