An odd item from the author of the Jalna books is perhaps for more sensitive souls than this reader has for it left an impression of utter inconsequence, un by the wit that nonsense needs and too flat to make its ""message"" ring true. Lambert, a little lamb who can sing prettily, is taken by fat, disgruntled and rich Mr. Van Grunt on an expedition to the South Pole. Mr. Van Grunt, who has stomach trouble, wants Lambert as a nice, mild meal someday. But instead, he becomes friends with the lamb, they see the Pole together and return to the farm with happy memories. There you have it... Ink drawings of lambkins and other animals, by Eileen Soper.
