At first, everything goes smooooothly. But . . . Flossie gets bus-sick. Goldie goes AWOL. Bathroom breaks are a nightmare. And the whole herd storms the gift store like bulls -- er, cows in a china shop!

Niagara Falls will never be quite the same. If Manny doesn't find a way to get these cows back on the farm, the vacation may turn into an udder disaster!

About the Author:

Suzy Becker is doing what she always wanted to do when she grew up: writing books, living on a cow-free farm, and making her bed only when she feels like it. She has written four other books with pictures, including All I Need to Know I Learned from My Cat.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 2–This tongue-in-cheek story follows the adventures of a boy who decides to take his family's 500 cows on a visit to the Falls. Manny soon finds that moving the insouciant bovines is rather daunting as they pack their hay; sprawl aboard buses; sing a cow-centric version of Old MacDonald Had a Farm; take over the rest areas; eat, play, and deposit some unwelcome–but udderly necessary–cow pies; and descend on the tourist attractions at their destination. When the bill from the shopaholic cows' visit to the gift shop threatens to bankrupt the boy, they pitch in by leaping over the Falls with buckets of milk that turns into butter, which they sell to eager tourists. All's well that ends well as Manny and the herd return home in cow-spotted limos–and readers see the recipe to shake their own butter into being. The crowded, breezy, watercolor-and-ink illustrations are similar in style to Susan Meddaugh's and William Steig's work. Becker throws in a few interesting mini-facts on cows and milking throughout the tale. (A cow must be milked 2 times a day, which makes 10 gallons of milk each day. There are 350 squirts in each gallon. 350 squirts x 10 gallons x 500 cows=1,750,000 squirts every day!) Far-fetched? Yes. Silly? Definitely. But kids will find themselves laughing at and falling for this goofy story.–Marge Loch-Wouters, Menasha's Public Library, WI
