That Irrepressible Clorinda!

One afternoon while taking the sun, a cow named Clorinda casually notices the flight of a passing barn swallow. "Oh, how I wish I could fly like a bird," thinks Clorinda. So (never mind that a cow never has), Clorinda resolves to be the first and to show the world how it's done. She flatly dismisses the reasoned misgivings of her dear friend Hop and then enlists the help of her dear friend Len. One way or another, Clorinda the cow will fly. Sky high!

But more important to the intrepid trio than their Lindbergh-like achievement is the warm, sustaining friendship that binds them together.

Just as in their first collaboration, Clorinda, Robert Kinerk and Steven Kellog team up in an adventure that soars above the aspirations of ordinary bovines. Clorinda Takes Flight will inspire picture book readers to follow their dreams, no matter how impossible the quests may seem.

About the Author:

Robert Kinerk is the author of Clorinda, illustrated by Steven Kellogg, which was an IRA Children's Book Award Notable Book, and about which Booklist said in a starred review, "Much applause for Clorinda." Mr. Kinerk grew up in Alaska and has worked as a journalist and playwright. He now lives with his wife, Anne, in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 3—The adventuresome cow returns. Clorinda is determined to fly and enlists the help of Hop the pig and Len the farmhand. Using scavenged parts, the three cobble together a plane (powered by Len's washing machine), a rocket (with canister vacuums), and a helicopter (a rowboat with oar "blades"), but each vehicle crashes. The trio finally succeeds with a hot-air balloon stitched together out of clothes from Len's wash line and filled with air heated by using sunlight and mirrors. Clorinda and Hop glide across the ocean for a visit with the Queen of England. Luckily, the generous monarch sends back a box of tea (wrapped in a Union Jack) for Len, who was unintentionally left behind. Never missing a beat, Kinerk's rhyming text celebrates friendship and cooperation: "Len, Hop, and the cow made a very good team./The guys kept her working, and she helped them dream." Kellogg's mixed water-based medium paintings show the immensity of the world and the characters' imaginations. The artist perfectly captures light, from buttery dawn to the indigo of space, and a fantastic in-between of a cloud-studded sky. Comic images abound, such as a rear view of Hop being knighted. Great fun for one-on-one sharing.—Gay Lynn Van Vleck, Henrico County Library, Glen Allen, VA
