KIRKUS REVIEW

A delightful book, which parallels his earlier The Twelve Seasons (1949) and again describes the pleasures which a ""cockney"" has found in country living. Something of an amateur naturalist and biologist, he has many interests- particularly in his cats, his ducks, and his frog. But a chapter he devotes to the charms of pet mice is really ingratiating, while some later observations on ""Crystals and Colloids"" take on a philosophic tone and pursue a more scientific inquiry. Serene, mildly speculative, this is a personal sort of natural history which will appeal to the more contemplative reader- city reared or country bound.
