KIRKUS REVIEW

Further incidents on the Iversens' farm in the Great Lakes district (see Here Comes Kristie and Kristie and the Colt) with the twins Elmer and Einer, the mare Kristie, and the latest addition- Buttercup, a black and white Holstein. Elmer and Einer work hard to buy Buttercup for their mother by trading Kristie's colt, Little K. They see the cow make a warm friendship with Kristie, polish her sleek sides, hunt frantically when she gets lost by eating herself right into the haymow. Delightful slow going Swedish humor full of yumping yiminies, yusts and yam, and an endearing set of animals will please beginning readers too.
