KIRKUS REVIEW

A fifth picture-book reprint of one of Herriot's heartwarming animal stories: Blossom, a superannuated cow, gets an eleventh-hour reprieve from the knacker--thanks to her own homing instinct and her loyal owner's realization that he still has a use for her. The well-told incident makes a pleasant story for children, much enhanced by Brown's splendid, evocative paintings--which capture Yorkshire better than any photo. The jacket art, unaccountably by someone else, is wooden by comparison.
