Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1—Marjorie, the bovine heroine of The Cow That Laid an Egg (HarperCollins, 2008), is back, and she's determined to enter her daughter, the mooing chick, in the barnyard beautiful baby contest. The only trouble is that the contest is strictly for cows. Daisy causes a ruckus when she slurps a worm off the judge's hat, earning her mother lots of derisive laughter, but Marjorie stops everyone cold with a simple declaration: "Daisy might not be like your babies—but she's mine, and I love her!" She wins the award for best mom and a smooch from Derek the bull. Ayto's busy cartoon illustrations match the off-kilter humor of the story. Though the climax lacks the punch of the first book, the heartfelt message and silly, big-eyed characters still provide plenty of appeal.—Kathleen Kelly MacMillan, Carroll County Public Library, MD

Marjorie the cow is back with a hilarious continuation of the story The Cow That Laid an Egg. This time the trouble starts when the farmer's wife announces a "Beautiful Baby Contest." All the other cow babies do "cow-like" things to prepare for the contest: mooing, trotting, and swishing their tails. The other cow mothers laugh at poor Marjorie's baby, who looks suspiciously like a chicken. But Marjorie doesn't listen. She thinks Daisy is perfect! Once again Andy Cutbill delivers a great message about acceptance and a mother's love.

"Daisy might not be like your babies," says Marjorie during the competition, "but she's mine, and I love her!"

The illustrations are absolutely hysterical (chickens jumping on a trampoline?). Great read-aloud story for Mother's Day or anytime of the year. Get the first book and read them back to back.

My 18-month old daughter absolutely loves this book. The illustrations are great and the message is very sweet. Even though my husband calls it the "book about the delusional cow," he loves reading it to our daughter. Highly recommend it.

While the concept of a best mother is really lost on my two-year-old, the story is cute and she loves cows so the pictures are great.
