[The third Bertie book, Bertie Makes a Break, is] as good as the first, better than the second. Bertie is now feeling the pinch of poverty. He goes into business with slippery Mr. Sleemish, who skips town, leaving Bertie to bear the reproaches of his fellow citizens. But, as always, Bertie gets a second chance, nabs the swindler, squares himself with the town. Fast and funny. Recommended.
