From the Publisher:
Owen isn't expecting anything other than a good night's sleep when he's shipped off to his grandmother's farm after his baby sister is born, but he soon discovers that he fits right in with the three-legged dog, the blind goat, and a very angry pony. Then Grandma wins the lottery and everything changes.


From the Critics: 

"a thrilling outcome for Owen ... one that debut author McMaster deftly and convincingly orchestrates." Susan Perren, Children's Book Reviewer, The Globe and Mail, November 8th, 2008
www.theglobeandmail.com/arts/childrens-books/article716784/ 

"This gentle novel brings to mind the works of James Herriot, full of memorable animal characters, cups of steaming hot cocoa, and frosty mornings out in the barn. Highly recommended." CM: Canadian Review of Materials, March 20th, 2009 www.umanitoba.ca/cm/vol15/no15/carriedawayonlicoricedays.html
