Can't Stop Reading

Lucky for me I get a hefty discount at work, because I just can't seem to stop myself!

I'm just going to get this out of the way here at the start: Mem Fox is a genius. I cannot imagine a world where she puts out bad books. Just so everyone knows. A Particular Cow is of course, no exception.

This particular cow likes to go for a walk of a Saturday morning. Unfortunately, she gets rather stuck in a particular pair of underwear. Which belong to a particular woman. Etcetera, etcetera. Fortunately after a brief adventure involving a mail cart, and a boat, our particular cow is returned to her pasture, safe and sound.

Terry Denton's illustrations do a great job of emphasizing the ridiculousness of the situation. Various minor characters exclaim hilariously throughout the book, my particular favourite being the turtle that shouts: Incoming!

    This is one of my fav Mem Fox books too. There's also one about a green sheep that's cute, but A Particular Cow has more of a story.

    I think my fav so far has been Hunwick's Egg.
