This was an enjoyable audio book. The narrator was very good, using different voices for different characters and having the right tone for each situation. I liked the novel because it had different plots happening in a relatively short book. It's a family drama, with a ghost story, it has some mysteries and stresses the importance of respecting animals. Despite being a book that children will like it is sophisticated enough for adults enjoy. I had a great time reading it and would recommend it.

Eva Ibbotson is a fun writer, esp. for those coming out of smaller chapter books and going on for their own enjoyment. Her stories are full of adventure, great imagination, and kids who take charge and are pro-active (to use today's PC words) about their worlds. There are adults in her stories, and with this story, some are good and some are NOT, but it is the kids who save the day. This story is interesting because it is a fantasy based on real creatures....the white cows. Great characters, cute and fun and funny, and an engaging plot....recommended.

My favorite Ibbotson is still the Star of Kazan. Beautiful story. Great for reading to 7-10 year olds. You can't really go wrong with Ibbotson!

There really is a long-kept herd of pure bred and pure white "wild" cattle - you aren't allowed to go near them at all because they will become homicidal - at Chillingham castle in Northumberland. I saw a brochure for it on the way down St. Cuthbert's Walk to Lindisfarne. Fun to see them used in fiction. Lots of good takes on old faithfuls like ghosts, etc. in here, and some up-to-date statements about extreme wealth and animal care. A good one for generally good Ibbotson.

I find I always have to pause a bit with Eva Ibbotson's books - as they are pretty descriptive, but then I remember - oh, yes this is for THAT age group. I do enjoy Eva's plots and they do have different endings and different little things she wants us to learn about ourselves. I would recommend her.

As a older person who enjoys science fiction, I enjoyed this story even though it really seemed to be aimed at the pre-teen age audience. But then again, a good story is still a good story!

love eva ibbotsen. something kids and grownups can read.
This is a wonderful story. I got it so that my fifth graders could listen to it, but I've kept it in my car. David Tennant's voice is a dream to listen to, which is the reason I decided to purchase it in the first place. I was not disappointed.
Several hours of an enchanted voice and a good story. You can't go wrong with that combination.
