Amazing Cows!: Udder Absurdity for Childrenby Sandra Boynton
Synopses & Reviews
From Sandra Boynton--as it could only come from Boynton--an inventive new exuberant jumble of a book for the young reader. Amazing Cows is a picture book, a storybook, a book of fun and games--it's all those things in one. Plus it even shows you how to find the startling recording of Maurice Ravel's "Bolero Completely Unraveled for Orchestra and Kazoos" performed by Sandra Boyton & The Highly Irritating Orchestra. (Running time is 17:14, but seems MUCH longer.)
A work of pure obsession, Amazing Cows celebrates cows and offbeat cowness with a miscellany of cow stories, cow poems, cow jokes, and other bovine ephemera. Along the way, expect lively guest appearances by ducks, pigs, and excessive numbers of chickens. There's a song: "It Had to Be Moo." A game: "Find the Hidden Cows." Famous Barnyard Composers (surely you've heard of Wolfgang Amadeus Moozart and Johann Sebastian Bockbockbock). Knock-knock jokes, a cow myth, and an Amazing Cow comic-book adventure: "Trouble on Zebblor 7." Cow fashion. Cow Limericks. How to Speak Cow. Plus so much mooer.
Amazing Cows is full-color, 96 pages long, and packed with the kind of silly fun that young readers adore, especially when they can read it to themselves--and then read it to their parents, and then to their little brothers, and then to the family dog. Or the family cow.
