It's raining big fat cows today.
How many cows?
It's hard to say.
A big cow here.
A fat cow there.
Big fat cows are
Cows in space.
Praise for The Big Fat Cow That Goes Kapow
“Broad slapstick humor and galloping, Seuss-like rhymes are just part of the reason this sequel to The Cat on the Mat Is Flat has strong child appeal. Denton's funny illustrations are full of action, and his use of stick figures and stink lines makes the book look as though it had been illustrated by a cheeky but talented kid.” —School Library Journal, starred review
“Early, emerging, reluctant, and accomplished readers alike are certain to enjoy this hilarious, easy to read book chock-full of whacky, slapstick rhyme. Perfectly complemented with zany black-and-white illustrations, kids will gobble-up these 10 short stories. . . . Full of humor, fun, and an easy format that builds reading confidence, this selection is irresistible.” —Herald Tribune (Sarasota, FL)
