Summary

Cow has lost her moo--can she find it again?

Having lost her moo, Cow is stuck clucking. The only thing to do is go out and find that moo! Join Cow and her friends as they conduct their vocal barnyard search. Cow tramps through a wheat field and on into the starry night until she is too tired to look any farther. But in the end, Cow and her moo are reunited, and all is well.

The simple repetition will have children chanting right along with Cow--" It is not you who has my moo! "

Using a van Gogh-inspired palette and art style, Caldecott Honor winner Denise Fleming has created a character who will appeal directly to a preschooler's sense of humor.

The Cow Who Clucked is a 2007 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "When Cow awakens one morning to find herself making a cluck instead of a moo, she begins a quest for her lost sound. She talks with Dog, Bee, Cat, Fish, Duck, Goat, Mouse, Snake, Squirrel, and Owl, but each animal makes its proper sound. Only when she returns to the barn and greets Hen with a Cluck, cluck does she hear the Moo, moo she has been missing. Their exchange of greetings makes the magical switch she has been longing for, and the happy Cow lets out a bellowing Mooo. Fleming illustrates the story using her signature technique of pulp painting, in which the finished art is created as an integral part of the paper-making process. The large, deeply hued, double-page compositions feature the determined cow surrounded by a winning cast. Evidently inspired by Van Gogh's Starry Night, the endpapers add a distinctive beginning and ending to this pleasing picture book, which offers opportunities for children to chime in with farm animal sounds and to predict the story's outcome. --Carolyn Phelan Copyright 2006 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Fleming's (Barnyard Banter) signature cotton fiber illustrations are as sumptuous as ever in this tale of a farmyard mix-up. For reasons not revealed, Cow wakes up "to find she had lost her moo." But who has her moo? None of the usual suspects pans out-although Cow's quest gives readers the opportunity to make a number of crowd-pleasing sounds, plus Cow's catchy refrain: "It is not you who has my moo." Not until the end of a disappointing day does Cow discover that one of the chickens sounds distinctly unchicken-y. "Hen!" Cow shouts. "It is you who has my moo!" Sounds are mysteriously exchanged and order is restored under starry rural skies. Rich, unusual textures and luxuriant colors, long Fleming's hallmark, here combine in a way that makes every composition feel positively indulgent. Cow, rendered in chocolate brown accented in electric red and ultramarine, seems like a celebration of all things bovine; even the tiny yellow birds and skinny green snake take on a luminous presence, as if put on the page to remind the audience of just how wonderful the world is. Will readers be frustrated by the lack of explanation for the story's premise and conclusion? Perhaps-then again, these pages could be seen as a gorgeous launching pad for a question every youngster savors answering: "What do you think happened?" Ages 4-8. (Aug.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
