A HORSE AND A HOUND, A GOAT AND A GANDER

Another visit with the animals at Maple Hill Farm--this time via personality profiles (not stories) of Bashful Boy, a stouthearted horse who's leery only of strangers (""Do you suppose that Bashful Boy is bashful?""); a sad-eyed, sharpnosed bloodhound named John; a demure nanny goat called Goat Dear; and a foul-tempered gander, Evil Murdoch, who's really a ""silly,"" ""sentimental"" soul ""if you can use such words about a bird."" You can, presumably, if you can speak of goats as ""courteous,"" mannerly, and ""polite."" With the Provensens' usual pretty, posterish pictures, the usual vacuous, unchildlike chatter.
