She's laid an egg! But does the baby inside the egg really belong to Marjorie? Emotions run high in the farmyard as everyone waits to find out...

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

Praise for

`This book has been wonderfully designed and the text is in perfect harmony with the incredible funny illustrations
