Illustrated by ROBERT MCCLOSKEY
Pollyanna, the Jellicot pony, belonged in the paddock, just as the hens belonged in the henyard, for gossiping and laying eggs. In fact, from Miss Milliken the cat to Clarissa the immense pink pig, from the cow—Dorinda, Duchess of Dorset—to the geese, there was a proper inhabitant with a proper function on every part of the Jellicot farm. Even the Jellicots had their place in the scheme of things, while Peter Paley, the farmer whose wife made such good pies, was especially useful to Junket in seeing that things were as they should be. Because Junket, a very large and very busy Airedale, felt that he was responsible for keeping everything on the farm "just so."
"Just so" it was, for as far back as Junket could remember—until the terrible day the Jellicots departed, and Mr. McDonegal, who disapproved of animals, moved in with his family. Junket was broad-minded enough, but something would just have to be done with these extraordinary people who did not know how to live in the country.
With her own special mixture of gravity and outright laughter, Mrs. White tells how Junket met this situation. And with his own special mixture of gravity and fun, Robert McCloskey has made perfect drawings for this book.
