Synopses & Reviews
New York Times bestselling authors, Amy Krouse Rosenthal and Tom Lichtenheld return with an illustrated love note for your nearest and dearest, filled with moo-ving declarations uttered by one adorable cow.
Like their New York Times bestseller I Wish You More, this humorous book is both an uplifting gift book for adults and a heartfelt picture book for children. "Moo-ooh baby, I sure do love you" is the opening line, narrated by a spotted cow drawn in simple emotive brushstrokes that are a Lichtenheld signature. "I love you every which way . . . good moo-d, bad moo-d, weepy moo-d, weird moo-d," the cow continues in a string of bovine puns: "I also love pizza, but that's a moo-t point." Drawn primarily in black and white on brown craft paper, the illustrations are simple, sophisticated, and appealing to all types of readers and all kinds of relationships--the gender- and race-neutral cow is the perfect proxy for all of us.
A wonderful valentine for a sweetheart, a loving gift for a grandparent, or a read-aloud message to a child, Holy Cow conveys deep feelings of affection and appreciation with the lighthearted humor for which the children's book bestselling duo Rosenthal and Lichtenheld are known.
