Synopsis

The Best Cow in Show by Andy Cutbill

Hilarious sequel to The Cow That Laid an Egg Marjorie the cow is terribly excited. She's going to enter her daughter, Daisy, in the Baby Cow Contest. Daisy has been a very special cow ever since the day that she surprised everyone by hatching out of an egg! Marjorie feels sure that Daisy will win, hooves down. But the other mothers are starting to talk...Daisy isn't quite like the other babies; she's small and feathery, and she can't even chew the cud yet. Is there something Marjorie should know? There are plenty of surprises in store for Marjorie the cow in this hilarious follow-up to 'The Cow That Laid an Egg', introducing handsome new character, Derek the bull!

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.

's Choice Junior 'A wonderfully madcap story with wacky illustrations.'

'Children will love the sheer craziness of this story, and Russell Ayto's spectacular illustrations are the perfect accompaniment.'

'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'
