Product Overview: A fun story written in a rhyming, limerick style, “When Cows Fly” is aimed at the younger set. Illustrated with finely cut paper illustrations, the story revolves around a boy in the woods, his pet cows and a massive pile of garbage that is accumulating nearby. Jacob takes matters into his own hands. He attaches wings to his cows and they go to work. What happens next is both funny and (a little bit … ) gross. You can probably guess.
Mary’s Review: Jake is a young boy who loves living on his farm where everything is nice and quiet and natural in every way. He loves his cows, sleeping under the stars, and fishing for bass. One day this all ended when the city decided to build a hugh mountain out of garbage near his land…a dump. The foreman thought the bigger, the better and more beautiful. When Jake asked him to stop, the reply was, “When cows fly”. With a thoughtful smile on his face, Jake comes up with a very fitting plan and cows begin to fly. This is a cute book with a very meaningful ending.
The illustrations are simple and adorable and the kids loved the ending.
I recommend this book for all ages 3-12. They will truly enjoy it. I did.
