The Cow That Laid An Egg

Written by Andy Cutbill
Illustrated by Russell Ayto
ISBN 978-00613772957

Just when you thought there couldn't possibly be another picture book set in a barnyard--Ta-da-MOO! A new, fresh barnyard story is hatched, thanks to Andy Cutbill and Russell Ayto!

Lovely Marjorie the cow (who is blessed with the kind of long, lush lashes that would make a mascara ad model green with envy) doesn't feel very special. After all, she can't ride bicycles or do handstands like the other cows at the farm. In an effort to cheer her up, the chickens plant an egg in her stall. Soon everyone on the farm is clucking about the egg that Marjorie laid-- except for the cows, who are suspicious. Will Marjorie be able to prove that she is indeed a special egg-laying cow?

This book incorporates the three important S's--Silly, Sweet and Succinct. The wild, zingy colors and whimsical illustrations add lots of panache to this funny tale.

And of course, we LOVE the fact that chickens are prominently featured! Ayto's chickens are almost as cute as we are.

We just got this book at our library today. Fun one, but cows and eggs, how can you go wrong?
