The Big Fat Cow That Goes Kapow by Andy Griffiths

Cows in boats. Cows in suits. Big fat cows in cowboy boots! Oh no - watch out! Don't look now! This one is an Exploding Cow. This is a collection of utterly wacky and irreverent rhyming poems and short stories. The cleverly simple, repetitive texts and literally explosive denouements will entice even the most reluctant child to keep on reading. Energetic line illustrations by Terry Denton. 'Udderly amazing!' - The Moos of the World .
