Cows can't fly but I don't care. One day I drew some in the air!
And when a breeze blows the boy's drawing into the air, suddenly cows CAN fly! They're flying over his house, they're flying over the school, they're flying all over the place. Unfortunately, no one sees them but him. But he knows the truth -- if cows can fly, isn't anything possible?
With a lively, rhyming text and hilarious illustrations, this appealing picture book is sure to be a hit.From School Library Journal:
Kindergarten-Grade 2AA fanciful book in which a boy's imagination takes flight. In reserved rhyming verse, the story tells of what happens when the young narrator's picture of flying cows is caught by the wind and eventually settles in a cow pasture. Obviously impressionable, the cows themselves lift off the ground and take flight. The child is delighted to see the bovine airships, but can not convince any adults to look upward to take in the amazing sight. "Ms. Crumb said cows were far too fat; that facts were facts, and that was that." Of course, as the adults rattle off their blas? logic, the airborne creatures loom largely in the background with outstretched hooves. The rounded cartoon illustrations are featured on full double-page spreads throughout. Milgrim's illustrations make flying cows seem perfectly natural. In the end, the incredulousness of the adults does not discourage this imaginative boy. Instead, he sets off to discover which other animals may be capable of flight. A perfect stimulant for young imaginations, as well as for kids who feel their exclamations are overlooked by the adults around them.AChristy Norris Blanchette, Valley Cottage Library, NY
