Synopsis

First Week at Cow School by Andy Cutbill

Marjorie the cow feels jolly proud when her daughter, Daisy, starts school. But lessons aren't as easy as they seem! Daisy can't hoof paint or swat flies like the other cows, and cowpat training is a disaster! Yet, Marjorie soon discovers that Daisy has a surprising talent to make her stand out from the herd!

Reviews

Praise for The Cow That Laid an Egg:

'The Cow That Laid an Egg! had me in stitches. More than just a silly story about a cow who thinks she's laid an egg, there's something deeper here about the idea of family, but it's so integral to the story that you don't feel as thought you've been hit over the head with the sledgehammer of worthiness.'
The Bookseller

'A Charming, comical tale.' Starred Editor's Choice, Junior

'A wonderfully madcap story with wacky illustrations.' Nursery World

'Children will love the sheer craziness of this story, and Russell Ayto's spectacular illustrations are the perfect accompaniment.' Alison Green (for Child Education)

Praise for 'The Witch's Children', illustrated by Russell Ayto:

'This book has been wonderfully designed and the text is in perfect harmony with the incredible funny illustrations' - Booktrust Best Books Guide
