Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 2–In this funny beginning reader, Mrs. Wow is mowing her lawn when she discovers a cow on it. Although she shoos it away, the animal will not leave. The woman's lazy dog and cat convince her to keep the animal and then attempt to train it to do their jobs, but the newcomer is a disaster at catching mice and guarding the house. Mrs. Wow finally finds two things that it can do–eat grass and give milk (which is later made into ice cream). The story ends happily with the cow mowing and the cat and dog doing anything for ice cream. The mostly one-syllable words with regular phonetic patterns are spare and natural, and Salerno's brightly colored cartoon illustrations amplify the text's humor.–Bobbee Pennington, Bryan Public Library, TX

Format: Hardcover
Mrs. Wow Never Wanted A Cow receives Steven Salerno's fine drawings, enhancing lively rhyming easy-read story pairing classic art with a Dr. Seuss-compatible format and theme. When a cow unexpectedly shows up, a lazy dog and cat decide to teach it their chores so they can relax but the cow is proving a problem until Mrs. Wow finds a solution.

I actually met the author of this book in a class and didn't know she was an author until the end of the class. She gave me a copy of this book because I have two young children and she wanted to know if they liked it. Both of my children (4 and 2) loved the book. For the next several nights this was the book they asked for by name. I can't think of a better endorsement for a book than to see my children excited and wanting to read it again.

The illustrations are also excellent and my 4 year old laughed at some of the pictures and my 2 year old could immediately tell what was going on because of the illustrations.

I highly recommend this book.

My daughter loved this book. She is a beginning reader and really enjoyed the story and funny pictures. It kept her attention for a long time and she still enjoys reading it over and over.

It's a very funny book that both kids and adults can enjoy! The words and phrases are easy for kids to understand and the pictures are really cute.
