Description

Prudence looks like a full-time cow - she wanders through pastures, she swats flies, and she lines up for supper. But Prudence is a part-time cow - she is also a scientist, an architect, and an inventor, studying and building and dreaming and creating. To the other cows in the herd, Prudence is a bit too part-time. She's just too different to be part of the herd. At first Prudence tries to fit in, suppressing all her scientific smarts and imaginative inventing. But in a moment of inspiration - Cow Power! - Prudence realises how to show the others that she can be a part-time cow and a full-time member of the herd. Funny and sweet, this is a story for anyone who's ever felt a bit different.

Review quote

"Shaffer creates a sympathetic outsider in Prudence, whose dedication to self-betterment--and the sciences--should resonate with any reader who feels pigeonholed or underappreciated." --Publishers Weekly on Prudence the Part-Time Cow
