A Birthday for Cow! by Jan Thomas


A Birthday for Cow! by Jan Thomas

Pig and Mouse are hard at work baking the best birthday cake EVER for Cow. But it would be a lot easier if Duck weren't hanging around, yammering on about turnips or some nonsense. With all this silliness going on, how will they manage to throw Cow a spectacular birthday party? Well, as it turns out, crazy Duck just might have had the right idea all along! With sturdy pages and rounded corners, this board book is just perfect for giving as a gift. The laugh-out-loud story from Jan Thomas features spirited illustrations that toddlers will adore, rowdy repetitions, irreverent dialogue - and a hilarious twist at the end!
