“It is impossible to speak of this second book without thinking strongly of the first. For it is truly a repeated 'miracle' as All Creatures Great and Small was described. Whatever joy one found in the first is in the second, only even more joyous; whatever laughter rippled from the throat in the reading of the first, finds even greater gusto in this one. It is funny, wry, simple in its story but as deep and perceptive of life's truths as the superlative sensitivity of the writer and his talent can make it. Best seller list, look out!” ―The Hartford Courant
“Humour, realism, sensitivity, earthiness; animals comic and tragic; and people droll, pathetic, courageous, eccentric--all of whom he views with the same gentle compassion and a lively sense of the sad, the ridiculous, and the admirable.” ―The Columbus Dispatch
“Superb, a book to be enjoyed in one sitting or in bits and pieces to make it last longer.” ―Library Journal
