KIRKUS REVIEW

We found this disappointing, in view of the hurrah about it. Held has lost his spontaneity of humor in his rather strained effort to follow Thorne Smith, with a bit of local color and timely interest in such things as sit-down strikes (on the part of the cows to force the price of milk up). The characters all have Olympian names, the animals share in the conversations. There are picaresque adventures, classleal allusions and plays on words, starlight vulgarltics - and most of them fall pretty flet.
