'... will appreciate how the wisdom of the Reachfar grandmother and Janet's sense and spirit have transferred to this picture/ story book which tells how the child ventures beyond bounds for the sake of a snowbound sheep and lamb. Mairi Hedderwick's delicately tinted Scottish hill scenes and interiors show with equal skill, weather, action and personality.'
