KIRKUS REVIEW

When a whimsical, bare-footed Scottish lad sets out on a leisurely jaunt to the mill, he encounters a kilt-clad, horn-blowing huntsman who soon is going the same way. Sandy and the huntsman pick up a jumble of people and animals one by one, and when the mill is reached, Sandy turns to his grand following and simply states that he'll be going no further. Most distinctive in the artist's good-humored view of the half-legendary highlands are the well-drawn, unique faces of Scots, gypsies, etc. Repetition of lines in the verse part of the text (the other half is in prose) is cleverly done-- by the author of Thistle and Thyme (1962, p.236, J-74).
