Synopsis

Something to Tell the Grandcows by Eileen Spinelli

When Emmadine the cow learned that Admiral Richard E. Byrd was looking for a few good cows to take to the South Pole, she volunteered - boldly going where no cow had gone before. Loosely based on a historical event, Eileen Spinelli's humorous tale of Emmadine's adventures will delight young readers, while Bill Slavin's bold acrylic illustrations bring this unique and heroic cow to life.

Reviews

Apparently several cows did accompany Byrd on his 1933 trip to the Pole. Spinelli has taken that fact as her jumping-off point for this charming and instructive tale. Slavin's spirited acrylic illustrations are a perfect match. - Kirkus Reviews
