KIRKUS REVIEW

Back again is Herbert of Herbert and Herbert Again, and still with the tongue in cheek reporting on the freshly appreciated younger set. An episodic handling this, with each chapter a fresh adventure. Herbert wins a Shetland pony through a cereal box-cover contest. He evolves a plan for heating the sidewalk to melt snow and attracts a plethora of cats. He has a recording made of his own voice to scare the crows while he is recuperating from a summer attack of measles on a farm, and eventually tires of it himself. Extreme cases, one might say, but there's a lively authenticity to the telling.
