Illus. in full color. "In this hilarious tale, Rob comes out one morning to find that his cow Martha is 'udderly' bored with her life. 'It's eat grass, get milked. Eat grass, get milked.' Martha wants more. In fact, she wants to walk on the moon. Teague's ebullient artwork captures a very determined cow in a variety of decidedly uncowlike settings and he illustrates them all with humor and panache. Although the story-hour set will get most of the jokes, slightly older children will be the most amused."--Booklist.

PreSchool-Grade 4-When Rob comes for milk, Martha, his rather histrionic cow, reveals her boredom with eating grass and her desire to become a "'cowsmonaut'" and journey to the moon. Folding her hooves across her chest, she states emphatically, "'No moon, no milk.'" Rob tries to distract her with a series of earthly tourist jaunts: surfing at Venice Beach ("'Hang ten, Martha'"), exploring Crater Lake National Park, even a trip to Radio City Music Hall ("'Not the rockets, Martha. Rockettes!'"). Vowing to reach the moon on her own, Martha stampedes through the streets of New York City, finally arriving at the American Museum of Natural History, where she dons a space helmet and proudly walks on a replica of the lunar surface. Tongue-in-cheek humor, clever wordplay, and offbeat asides make for a lively text. Teague's lush, deeply colored paintings feature textured brushstrokes. A carefully balanced layout alternates full-page illustrations with smaller vignettes. Whether depicting the adventurous cow perched precariously on a surfboard, or hinting at the famous photograph as Martha stands on the "moon" holding the American flag, Teague makes the most of each funny situation. Read this along with Lisa Ernst's When Bluebell Sang (Bradbury, 1989) for an entertaining story time about bovines.
