The Lovereading4Kids comment

Tina the cow has a thirst for discovery, and her mind is full of wonderful things. Tina’s three sisters are only interested in grass, and dismiss her amazing ideas as impossible, ridiculous, nonsense. But when Tina leaves a note explaining that she’s gone flying, they have to see for themselves and a whole new world suddenly opens up. This is a funny story, with delightful, witty and expressive illustrations – Tina and her sisters positively skip up their stairs - and it also contains an important message about the importance of believing in your dreams. ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

The Cow Who Climbed a Tree by Gemma Merino

Tina isn't like the other cows. She believes that the sky is the limit, that everything is possible. But her sisters aren't convinced and when Tina tells them she has climbed a tree and met a dragon, they decide that her nonsense has gone too far. Off they go into the woods to find her ...and soon discover a world of surprises!

A richly atmospheric, thoughtful and funny picture book from rising star Gemma Merino. Her debut picture book, The Crocodile Who Didn't Like Water, has won a string of awards and many fans all over the globe. Her deliciously expressive artwork is created using monoprint, coloured digitally.
