KIRKUS REVIEW

Charm and tender humor pervade this sweet but somehow credible story of a little French-Canadian boy and his blind delivery horse, Tinette. In solving the mystery of the gold, hidden in the family's windmill by an ancestor just before he was carried off by the Indians, the young hero manages to pay the medical bills for his little horse. Thrifty farmways, foreign but familiar characters, blending of folkways of French, Indian and Canadian under the angle of a spiritual church of brotherly love, this is a book to read aloud, to read alone and to read again. The delightful incidents and characters add amazing gentleness and sweetness -- and no sloppiness.
