About the Author:

ALICE SCHERTLE has written many well-loved books for children, including Little Blue Truck and Little Blue Truck Leads the Way. She lives in Plainfield, Massachusetts.

From Publishers Weekly:

Like a vaudeville show with nary a weak act, Shertle's (William and Grandpa) collection of poems about cows abounds with tongue-in-cheek spoofs, verbal acrobatics and lyrical songs that are aptly illustrated by debut artist Schaffer's wry cast of brown and purple cows. With understated grace, "Shelter" describes a cow moving "heavily toward sheltering/ aspen.../ At dawn/ a newborn calf/ follows closely at her/ side, his small hooves denting the wet/ prairie." In "Taradiddle," Shertle tells of a cow who, after a famous adventure, "never tried/ to jump again,/ but gazed for hours at the moon." In "April 1," she imagines a day when "the sun/ came up wearing/ a mustache" and a "frisky white [cow] gave vanilla/ milk shakes." With wide-brushed oil paintings, Schaffer is deft at showing both the beauty of milking time (when a cow's "jaws move, chewing/ the good grain, blowing clouds/ of warm breath into the melting/ morning") and the humor of a bespectacled schoolmarm cow teaching calves the difference between the words "cow" and "bough," "moo" and "through." By turns funny and tender, cheeky and thoughtful, this collection turns an unlikely subject into Grade A fare. All ages.
