Cows to the Rescueby John Himmelman
Synopses & Reviews
It's the day of the county fair!
Three-legged races, a “Smartest Pig” contest, the Ferris wheel—what could be more fun? But the Greenstalks car wont start, so theyll need some help getting there. . . .
Cows to the Rescue is the fabulous new book in John Himmelmans hilarious barnyard saga. It follows Chickens to the Rescue and Pigs to the Rescue, bringing back the fun with brand new mishaps and brand moo—er, new—problem-solvers.
"First chickens, then pigs — now the Greenstalk family's cows are lending a hoof, just in time for the county fair. Himmelman's white and ginger-colored bovines carry the family to the fair when the car won't start; bathe a muddy Ernie the duck (insuring that he wins the Handsomest Duck Contest); accompany fearful Emily on the Ferris wheel; and offer an impromptu lesson to unstudied pigs ahead of the Smartest Pig Competition. Himmelman relies on the formula he introduced in the first two books, but this expressive and determined herd of cows should have readers laughing until the you-know-whats come home. Ages 4 — 8.
