Review quote

"Mitton's jaunty text begs to be read aloud" The BooksellerPRAISE FOR RUSSELL AYTO:`The Cow That Laid an Egg... had me in stitches. More than just a silly story about a cow who thinks she's laid an egg, there's something deeper here about the idea of family, but it's so integral to the story that you don't feel as thought you've been hit over the head with the sledgehammer of worthiness.'The Bookseller"A Charming, comical tale." Starred Editor's ChoiceJuniorPRAISE FOR TONY MITTON:Tony Mitton truly knows children, their interests, and their delight in rhythm, rhyme and word-play. No child will be able to resist this book. - Child Educationshow more
