9780763620035: Kiss the Cow!

"With simple language, predictable rhythms and repetition, and flawless pacing, [Root’s] story begs to be read aloud. . . . Hillenbrand’s immense attention to detail is gratifying" - Kirkus Reviews (starred review)



When a very curious little girl meets a cow named Luella who is even
more stubborn than she is, who will be the first to back down? Phyllis
Root’s spirited tall tale finds a family of countless hungry children -
and a magic cow who demands a kiss on the nose to keep the sweet
milk flowing.

Review:

Never. Not a chance. Annalisa wouldn't dream of kissing Luella the cow, even though her mother kisses her every day after singing her a song and milking her. Still, inquisitive Annalisa is awfully interested in milking Luella, and one day she sneaks off and does everything just the way her mother does--all except for the kiss on the nose. The next day, Luella refuses to give any milk. And the day after that is the same. Annalisa's mother and her many brothers and sisters beg the stubborn little girl to relent, but Annalisa says "Never!... Never, never, never." Will the whole family have to live without milk and cheese forever? Or will Annalisa's innate curiosity get the best of her?

Both Phyllis Root and Will Hillenbrand claim to have tried to kiss cows while working on this story, but to no avail. "I was willing," Hillenbrand says, "but the cow wasn't." With red-haired Annalisa's little nose in the air throughout the story, readers will almost hear her cries of "never," and will surely identify with one whose feelings of absolute certainty can occasionally change. (Ages 4 to 7) --Emilie Coulter

About the Author:

Phyllis Root says, "I did not know what it was actually like to kiss a cow. So I went to the State Fair with every intention of kissing a cow. But when I got to the cow barn, there were all these 4-H kids who had raised their cows and were so proud of them. Somehow it didn't feel respectful to ask if I could kiss their cows."

Will Hillenbrand says he drew on memories of summers spent on a farm with his aunt and uncle and their thirteen children. "My cousins were full of practical jokes for me—the city kid—like squirting my face while milking the cow. My aunt was incredible. She never stopped working and could never imagine not working. It was such a warm, lively place, and I hope that comes through in the pictures." He also admits to trying to kiss a cow on a farm in Wisconsin. "I was willing," he recalls, "but the cow wasn't."
