Chris meets his green baby (from THE CABBAGE PATCH FIB) and 50 other green babies in this engaging tale. It all began when Chris begged his parents to let him adopt two cows--one of them pregnant! When the babies and their mothers get separated, the mothers get lost. Eventually, the babies alert their mothers by the pong (smell) of their diapers. The combination of narrator Kate Hosking's marvelous delivery and the imaginative sound effects used in a most unusual way add to this listening experience. Children will also learn about cows and about caring for others as Bolinda splendidly delivers Jennings's humor and charm.
