KIRKUS REVIEW

Mr. Brownware, a potter with six children, is depressed because people don't buy his plain pots--but one day when he's off digging clay the chickens get into his work room; the ensuing commotion--""glaze splashing all over the place""--results in the first batch of potter Brownware's subsequently famous spotted pots. Tolerable, with a glimpse of pot making from clay field to kiln and Garland's splash-dash paintings (less frantic than in Henry and Fowler) to stir things up.
