KIRKUS REVIEW

Moooooove over, Minerva Louise: When it comes to daffy misidentifications, Cow’s got you beat. Seen in ultra-close-up photos, a small, mass-produced plastic Holstein squeeze toy visits a real farm, poses with “some big dogs” (actually a donkey and a horse) and feathered “cats,” runs into a herd of bovine “frogs,” among other encounters, then chronicles these adventures (“Chapter One. I am born”) on a portable typewriter. The text runs to a brief declarative sentence or two per page. Preschoolers will delightedly roar out corrections—“Those aren’t cats! They’re geese!”—but Cow’s decidedly skewed view of reality will engender hoots from any audience. (Picture book. 3-6)
