About Books For Children Wilma and The Water Pistol, Nancy Roth Bjorkman, Golden, 36 pgs., ages 5-9, $4.50. Meet Wilma, a spirited little girl who overcomes a difficult situation with determination, imagination, and just plain guts — and learns a lot about herself along the way. "Wilma and the Water Pistol" (That Couldn't Shoot Straight) tells the story of Wilma and her new water pistol that shoots every way but the way it's supposed to: straight. Embarrassed by the laughter and jeers of the kids from the Side Street Shooting Range, Wilma eventually learns from, her friend, Mr. Hopkinds that "just because something is a little different doesn't mean it's no good." Wilma. . . shows very clearly theHnfluence of one of its ' author's main concerns — growing up female in a man's world. A resident of Belgium, Mrs. Bjorkman was a delegate to the International Women's Club convention last year. The Busy Book, Ali Mitgutsch, Golden, (picture book), 40 pgs., ages 3-6, $2.95. The Busy Book offers big, detailed spreads which take children on guided tours of bustling city streets, the teeming harbor, and a busy farming town. Wittily illustrated, each action-filled spread shows a richly detailed scene, such as a building site, a park, a beach, or a sawmill, and all the people who work and play there. Children will be delighted as they begin to identify all the familiar and unfamiliar places and objects in their everyday world, and they will spend hours weaving stories about all the action they see. (Well, maybe minutes if they are only three years old!) Here's a chance for parents to say "read to me" to their son or daughter instead of the other way around. The author, whose other picture books have been published in 19 foreign countries, has tried to show the importance of humor in his work. "I made up my mind that my illustrations — though maintaining technical accuracy — should have a certain cartoony quality. The drawings should have a loose style, which, to my way of thinking, is apt to arouse a child's curiosity and, as a result, help him to become better acquainted with any given subject." — Lorie Jammers-Murdoch. Barney Miller Cuts On Edge of Reality By JERRY BUCK Associated Press Writer LOS ANGELES (AP) — What's so funny about a comedy where nobody tells jokes or gets into zany situations? Plenty, if it's "Barney Miller." The situations in ABC's "Barney Miller" are about as mundane as you can get. The characters are so ordinary you wouldn't look at them twice on the street. You'd swear that Jack Webb could take this show and easily turn it into a low-key police drama. But "Barney Miller" is funny because it is on the cutting edge of reality. It milks laughs from anguish. "What we have done is take fundamentally dramatic situations and examine them," executive producer Danny Arnold said. "Reality is the key. The characters and the situations are mundane. But on closer examination you find the satirical twist is the closeness to reality. Making a dramatic situation just slightly larger than life produces the comedy. "The safety valve that allows us to live through tragedy and pain is the ability to hold it up and examine it. Farce and sketch comedy are so much larger than reality. You can laugh at it because you're so removed from it. But in satire you see something of . yourself." . Satire, as the saying goes, is what closes on Thursday. That nearly happened here. It took the show a long time to catch on, but now it is a solid hit. Arnold, a bearish man with the animated face of a standup comic, created the show with Theodore Flicker from a blend of two separate police comedies. He saw it as'the flip side of "Detective Story," approaching police work the way "M-A-SH." approaches war. "Barney Miller" is an ensemble of disparate characters reacting individually in a similar situation, as was "Detective Story." The key word for both is survival. Arnold believes that people ] today are more interested in \ looking at themselves than hi \ escape. "So many things are threat- ; ening people today they want to examine themselves," he said. "There were so many things you used to be able to believe in. All those dreams that allowed you to think of other things no longer exist. People are more dependent on themselves. Today you appeal to people on the most fundamental, emotional level. "People are threatened by everything — the air they breathe, terrorists — these are paranoid times. People want to be told that even in the worst • e i PC urn Bta n ces• something is funny."
