This is the story of a dog that is trained to hunt. But the problem is that the dog is also compassionate and kind. Every time he finds a wounded duck, he doesn't bring it to his master, the hunter. Instead, he looks after the injured bird. What will the hunter do when he finds out? (paperback reissue of ISBN 0-19-272147-X)show more

Review Text

A hunting dog, distressed at the sight of a wounded duck, sets up a secret island sanctuary for the birds his master shoots-and turns him against the whole bloody business. The implausibility of a bird dog becoming a bird doctor is only slightly mitigated by the varicolored exoticism of the settings and the fact that the hunter, in his motley, looks more like a court jester. Flimsy and fanciful. and thus no service to the cause. (Kirkus Reviews)show more
