KIRKUS REVIEW

A hunting dog, distressed at the sight of a wounded duck, sets up a secret island sanctuary for the birds his master shoots-and turns him against the whole bloody business. The implausibility of a bird dog becoming a bird doctor is only slightly mitigated by the varicolored exoticism of the settings and the fact that the hunter, in his motley, looks more like a court jester. Flimsy and fanciful. and thus no service to the cause.
