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.'

Nursery World 'Children will love the sheer craziness of this story, and Russell Ayto's spectacular illustrations are the perfect accompaniment.'
