"The valley of Pant Glas, an undisturbed corner of mid-Wales overlooking the Dovey Estuary. The animals are a thriving domestic assortment of hens, dogs, cats, cobs, goats, cocks and a sheep. And this is Elma Williams' true account of life with them in one ever increasing, always engaging family. We come to know her main characters thoroughly: the ebullient terrier, Snip, who finds virtue such a trial; Niall, the matriarch, nicotine-savouring nannygoat; the square sheep, Jane; Pewter the cock with a taste for Mendelssohn; Siriol the jester; Chita the amorous. These are the real animals, resourceful, often amusing, and not human beings who have somehow acquired tails. They are brought delightfully to life with lavish illustrations."
