When Cows Fly

by Tom Watson

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
The Michigan woods are beautiful and peaceful -- until something bad happens. A giant pile of filthy garbage is being dumped. Jacob decides to do something about it -- attaching some wings on his cows. The result? Let's put it this way: You wouldn't want to be under these cows when they get to work. Written by the author of "Stick Dog Wants a Hamburger," the story is illustrated with cut-paper pictures and written in a rhythmic (almost limerick) rhyming style.
A fun story written in a rhyming, limerick style, "When Cows Fly" is aimed at the younger set. Illustrated with finely cut paper illustrations, the story revolves around a boy in the woods, his pet cows and a massive pile of garbage that is accumulating nearby. Jacob takes matters into his own hands. He attaches wings to his cows and they go to work. What happens next is both funny and (a little bit ... ) gross. You can probably guess.
