When a cow unexpectedly shows up on Mrs. Wow’s lawn, her lazy dog and cat think they should teach her their chores, so they can rest. They find out that the cow is no good at catching mice or being a watchdog. But Mrs. Wow knows something the cow can do, and it makes the chores worth it! The funniest rhyming bovine Beginner Book since Mr. Brown Can Moo! Can You?

Originally created by Dr. Seuss, Beginner Books encourage children to read all by themselves, with simple words and illustrations that give clues to their meaning.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 2–In this funny beginning reader, Mrs. Wow is mowing her lawn when she discovers a cow on it. Although she shoos it away, the animal will not leave. The woman's lazy dog and cat convince her to keep the animal and then attempt to train it to do their jobs, but the newcomer is a disaster at catching mice and guarding the house. Mrs. Wow finally finds two things that it can do–eat grass and give milk (which is later made into ice cream). The story ends happily with the cow mowing and the cat and dog doing anything for ice cream. The mostly one-syllable words with regular phonetic patterns are spare and natural, and Salerno's brightly colored cartoon illustrations amplify the text's humor.–Bobbee Pennington, Bryan Public Library, TX
