Manny's Cows: The Niagara Falls Tale

by

Manny's Cows: The Niagara Falls Tale Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

At first, everything goes smooooothly. But . . . Flossie gets bus-sick. Goldie goes AWOL. Bathroom breaks are a nightmare. And the whole herd storms the gift store like bulls — er, cows in a china shop!

Niagara Falls will never be quite the same. If Manny doesn't find a way to get these cows back on the farm, the vacation may turn into an udder disaster!

Review:

"Combining an udderly ridiculous scenario and real bovine factoids, Becker (All I Need to Know I Learned from My Cat) churns out a comic adventure inspired by a true incident. Farm boy Manny can never take a real vacation — not with 500 dairy cows to tend. Or can he? Armed with let's-go enthusiasm and the help of head cow Bossy, Manny loads up his herd for a bus tour to Niagara Falls. The cows have a sing-along, Flossie gets bus-sick, and Buttercup enjoins 'Are we there yet?' as accompanying fact boxes provide details on how cows constantly spit up the cud they chew. The hilarious hoofers overwhelm a rest stop and don slickers for a view of the Falls before going on a gonzo shopping spree in the attraction's Official Gift Shop. Luckily, Bossy and Buttercup find an ingenious way to help Manny settle the damages. Becker's ink-and-watercolor illustrations, peppered with funny asides and thought bubbles, exude a zany, comic-book energy. The true and outlandish bits of the story will likely keep young readers laughing while they ponder cow behavior. As an interesting source note, a flap-copy item spotlights how a cow named Bossy Simms crossed the Falls to Goat Island in 1860. Ages 4-8. (June)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

In Becker's children's book debut as author/illustrator, Manny runs into trouble when he takes his cows on vacation and the herd storms the gift shop like bulls--er, "cows"--in a china shop. Full color.

About the Author

Suzy Becker is doing what she always wanted to do when she grew up: writing books, living on a cow-free farm, and making her bed only when she feels like it. She has written four other books with pictures, including All I Need to Know I Learned from My Cat.
