About this title


Farmer Dakin makes the unhappy decision to send his old cow, Blossom, to market to make room for a younger animal, but Blossom has an unusual surprise in store

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 3-- Herriot has again done a superb job of describing one of his many experiences during his long veterinary career. Blossom the cow was long beyond her prime as a milk producer. Her owner, Mr. Dakin, had confided to Mr. Herriot that he had regretfully decided that old Blossom must be sold, and she was taken away by the local cattle-drover. Blossom, however, had other ideas. She accompanied the drover as far as the nearest village, then broke away from the herd, and ran back home. Mr. Dakin reconsidered his earlier decision and decided to let Blossom stay at her old home as a calf feeder rather than as a milk producer. The text is enhanced by soft, sometimes dark, illustrations on each two-page spread. Brown has added a great deal of character to the story with her detailed watercolors. Children who have enjoyed Herriot's Moses the Kitten (1984) and Only One Woof (1985, both St. Martin's) will undoubtedly enjoy this one, too. --Eldon Younce, Harper Elementary School, KS
