She's a lactose-intolerant cow. Really. Elsa's got a secret unrequited crush...a big one. Lil, meanwhile, has a curiously fascinating love life of her own. Their world is populated with a mean little dog, a virtuoso cat, a yummy dish (of course), a chorus of lusty kitchen implements, a grumpy wishing star, and an aging silver spoon with a consuming desire of its own. Therein lies the funniest, most fanciful, over-the-top tale of sex and obsession you will ever have the pleasure of hearing.

About the Author:

Internationally published in five languages, Belorussian, Russian, French, Spanish and English; award-winning, syndicated cartoonist Marie Davis has broken free of the comic strip and is now writing novels! Marie spends endless hours in her office inventing wildly whimsical stories while her drawing table paces the floor, envious of the new attention shown to her computer!

Review:

Quick: What do an aging silver spoon, a violin-playing cat, a lactose-intolerant cow, and red and white checkered panties all have in common? They're major characters in a lively new short novel by Louisville author Marie Davis Hey Diddle Diddle is Davis' latest writing effort, but it's not something you can hold in your lap and read. It's a CD consisting of Davis herself reading 15 chapters: perfect to listen to in a group at a party, while driving through the countryside on a Sunday afternoon, or while working on a home craft. Enlivened by some funky harmonica playing by Christi Stevens and few hilarious sound effects, Hey Diddle Diddle tells the story of Lil, who can't seem to get enough home gadgets, and Veronica, a bear of a woman with some unusually colored panties. Peppered with adult lesbian humor which even I, as a gay man, could chuckle at, it''s a wildly imaginative, humorous romp. Though it tells of a women-only world, it contains universal themes of love, romance, and frustration that any of us can appreciate. Look for Hey Diddle Diddle at ww.motesbooks.com and local outlets in Louisville. Also available after January [2009] at the Williams-Nichols Archive & Library at the University of Louisville's Ekstrom Library, Special Collections Division. --The Letter, Louisville KY. Volume 20, issue 1

Hey diddle diddle, The cat and the fiddle, The cow jumped over the moon The little dog laughed to see such a sight And the dish ran away with the spoon. That certainly seems like a familiar nursery rhyme, one whose derivations are lost to antiquity--although some sources claim it's tied to an Elizabethan scandal, or Richard III's rise to power. Thanks to cartoonist and author Marie Davis, however, that little childhood gem is forever altered, tainted in the best possible way, warped into something sexy and funny and just a little bit askew. When one's imagination is allowed to wander into far-off fields, you see, it's impossible to predict what will happen. It all, however, is contained in Hey Diddle Diddle, out now from Motesbooks Audio. Diddle, for instance, is not simply a little rhyming word, but the nickname of Lil, a lesbian handywomyn with a crush on Veronica, the hot dish of a redhead wearing gingham panties and on a mission to bring gourmet ice cream to the world. The spoon is a remnant from Lil's last relationship, the one good thing to emerge from that disaster. The spoon has very specific tastes, and Veronica is most definitely not on the menu, as far as it is concerned. Possibility, the cat, fiddles both with its violin and with reality, granting wishes, at a cost. Bitty, meanwhile, is a dog who takes the concept of schadenfreude just a wee bit too far. Wrapping up the dramatis personae is Elsa, the cow, whose love for Neil Armstrong is exceeded only by her love for dairy products. It really is a shame, then, that she is so lactose intloerant. Broken into easy-to-digest chapters, the audiobook provides laughs aplenty, although the author most definitely has a dark sense of humor. One almost wishes Davis would release an actual physical book, looking just like a children's book gone horribly, terribly awry. Her skill as an artist is comparable to her skill as a writer, so it would truly be something to see. Topping off the experience, of course, is Davis' Kentucky drawl, pouring like warm butterscotch over the story. --Gay Peoples Chronicle, April 10, 2009 pg. 10

This dark fairy tale is not the story that you thought you knew. Fall in love with your imagination again as you delve into a world that is similar, yet distinctly different from our own. Ms. Davis has given us permission to daydream again, allowing our own sexual fantasies room to play along with a passionate diversity of characters. --Kentucky Tales Margaret J. Hults reviewer
