KIRKUS REVIEW

This successor to Greased Lightning is a delightful story of a small boy and a pet black lamb -- a story of the hill people in Fulton Corners, Indiana, where they still (in 1910) carded their own wool, spun their own coverlets, and knitted long stockings. Granny had the best coverlets in the Couny, and the County Fair proved enough of a lure, so that she agreed to go and show her coverlets, while Jerry exhibited his black lamb, brought up as a pet and his companion since the mother sheep spurned him. Delightfully written, with enough incident and enough atmosphere to keep one reading. The Kurt Wiese pictures -- if they follow those in Greased Lightning will give this added impetus.
