Pick. Whether you want to own or borrow this hilarious
book, you just have to read it! Kids and adults of all ages will
enjoy this story about a group of cows who discover an old
typewriter, giving them a voice. The cows type a letter with a
polite request for electric blankets (the barn is too cold) much
to the shock and chagrin of the farmer. What ensues is a cow
strike--they simply won't deliver milk if they don't get a
blanket--and negotiations, delivered back and forth by the
"neutral party", the ducks. There's a delightful
surprise ending to the story that people of all ages will enjoy
and plenty of fun goings-on in between. This is a fantastic book
you'll want to read again and again.
Written by Doreen Cronin and illustrated by Betsy Lewin.
