Not one of Barbara Cooney's better books

The flyleaf states that this book is suitable for children aged 4-8. Would a child know the meaning of a "grove", "management", "sow/hog", "azure", "turrets" or "debonair"? How can a widow "getting on in years" have two young daughters? Why is the sheep named "Molly" but the other animals are unnamed (except the rooster and a hen)? Are meals of milk, bread, eggs and bacon "scanty"? What is the colour "between yellow and red"? [brown] This story may cause young children to not want to close their eyes to go to sleep. Or if they are smart they'll feign sleep so they don't have to listen to this ill-suited story.
