The Punchbowl Family have a paying guest called Jewel (Bijou de la Couronne) – a cow who is almost black. It turns out she has been cownapped from France, and the Thorntons end up tracking down her rightful owner and returning her via Westling and Jim Deck’s fishing smack in a strictly illegal cross channel voyage.
