Not particularly significant, from any angle, this homey family and dog story. Lost plot interest than some of her books, but engaging Paul Brown pictures supply some appeal that the story lacks. Clipsy in a cocker, and has been adopted by the Rands; she presents them with six puppies and with the connivance of Tom and the cook. Clipsy and the puppies join the family motor trip to New England from Minnesota. (And eventually they pay their way by taking a blue ribbon at the Fair.) Quiet- but rather disappointing.
