LoveReading View on The Cow Who Fell to Earth

A Julia Eccleshare Pick of the Month June 2017

When a little cow, hitching a ride on a star, crash-lands into a field of sheep he has no way of communicating. All he can say is ‘WOO’ but the sheep, pig, cat, dog and even the cows have no idea what he is trying to say. How can he tell them he comes from a far-off star? And will they be able to help him to get home? Luckily, a picture of him at home turns up. Now everyone knows where he comes from and of course they will all help him to get home. Nadia Shireen’s entertaining illustrations and bouncy text add the right amount of ridiculous fun to a story with an important theme.  ~ Julia Eccleshare
