It's the day of the county fair!

Three-legged races, a "Smartest Pig" contest, the Ferris wheel—what could be more fun? But the Greenstalks' car won't start, so they'll need some help getting there. . . .
Cows to the Rescue is the fabulous new book in John Himmelman's hilarious barnyard saga. It follows Chickens to the Rescue and Pigs to the Rescue, bringing back the fun with brand new mishaps and brand moo—er, new—problem-solvers.

Praise for Cows to the Rescue

“This amusing picture book is a worthy successor to Chickens to the Rescue (2006) and Pigs to the Rescue (2010).” —Booklist Online

“…this expressive and determined herd of cows should have readers laughing until the you-know-whats come home.” —Publishers Weekly

“The pencil and watercolor illustrations are packed with plenty of personality and have enough detail to keep kids turning the pages to learn the outcome. Children will, of course, pipe up with the refrain 'Cows to the Rescue!' in group readings and during lapsits, and the mad antics of these friendly and very game rescuers will delight them.” —SLJ

“Himmelman's illustrations are such an artful eyeful--snappily colored and gloriously comic--that it is easy to overlook the pleasure of the simple text, a little motor that in many ways drives the whole production forward.” —Kirkus Reviews
