Summary

Hilda Mae Heifer has lost her melodic mi-mi-moo!

A klunk on the head and now Hilda's simply not sure what sound to make.

Is it a mew, or an oink, or possibly a honk? With the eager help of the farm animals, Hilda is determined, once again, to sing her sensational moo. Which should most certainly be a MOO-MOOO-MOO-MOO.

Moo Who? is a raucous read-aloud for the youngest noisemakers.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "PreS-Gr. 2. Palatini's tale of a cow suffering from an identity crisis is sheer entertainment from cover to cover. When Hilda the Heifer gets bonked on the noggin by a flying cow pie, she develops an ugly bump and amnesia. The ensuing story follows Hilda on her quest to find out just who she is, where she belongs, and exactly what sound she is supposed to emit. The author of Piggie Pie (1997), Moosetache (1995), and many others gets it exactly right with her dialogues between Hilda and the animals whose identities she tries to adopt. Children will revel in the giggle-inducing lists of each species' identifying characteristics, such as coughing up hairballs and laying eggs, as the mixed-up bovine stumbles her way to the realization that mooing is what she should be doing. Laugh-out-loud details within Graves' illustrations--from Hilda's rumpled, postbump pompadour to the bottle of Hog Wash used by a very hygienic pig--are pure delight. --Terry Glover Copyright 2004 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "When the cow Hilda Mae Heifer gets hit on the head by a flying cow pie, she wakes up clueless about the sound she's supposed to make. To the rest of the barnyard animals, that's no real tragedy. In fact, the general directive prior to her accident has been "Cover your ears when Hilda hit[s] a high note." But poor Hilda's quest to recover her sound seems to bring out the animals' benevolent side. Upon hearing the cow trying out his honk, a goose dons nerdy glasses, grabs a pointer and some visual aids, and lectures Hilda on what she is not. "Do you fly to Canada every year?" he says, map in tow. The pig, less successfully, tries to suggest that if Hilda were porcine she would most certainly have relatives who were "big boars"; Hilda thinks, "Maybe that did describe some members of her family." Palatini (Piggie Pie!) maintains a simultaneously arch and familiar tone throughout, narrating like a daffy relative, and Graves's (Frank Was a Monster Who Wanted to Dance) illustrations goose the jokes even more. His pictures-and his portrayal of the magnificently pink-snouted Hilda in particular-take on a corpulent plasticity. As for Hilda, she does indeed get her moo back. "Everyone else," writes Palatini, "got earplugs." Ages 4-7. (June) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved"
