Review

Starting school is full of fun in this laugh-out-loud sequel to The Cow That Laid and Egg and The Best Cow in Show.

Marjorie the cow feels jolly proud when her daughter, Daisy, starts school. But lessons aren't as easy as they seem... Daisy can't hoof paint or swat flies like the other cows, and cowpat training is a disaster! Yet, Marjorie soon discovers that Daisy has a surprising talent to make her stand out from the herd!

Shortlisted for the 2011 Roald Dahl Funny Prize, this is a hilarious school story sure to entertain any child.
