KIRKUS REVIEW

The sign on the Corn County Theatre door says, “Hoofers needed for musical show.” And Daisy the cow feels she qualifies, but her dancing audition is a bust. Though the director forbids cows on her stage, she does allow Daisy to work backstage. Daisy learns the theatre ropes from friendly Nina (a girl), but on the day of the performance, when Nina falls and hurts her ankle, guess moo, uh, who takes her place stomping, hopping, and dancing divinely, proving she really is a hoofer. The comical, lively color illustrations prance right along with Daisy. The premise is funny—and who can resist a cow putting on make-up and wearing striped tights? Mooo-ve over Angelina, here comes Daisy. (Picture book. 5-8)
