I find nothing to dislike about Miss Albert's book. The elements of mystery captured my interest. The animals' conversations and activities frequently tickled my funny bone, and I love the fascinating information about the history and culture of the British Empire so effectively woven into the story. Most of all, though, I loved the relationships among the characters. I highly recommend this and all the Cottage Tale books.
