When Cow gets her hooves on the farmer's car, she takes it for a wild ride through the country. Moooo! But a bump in the road brings this joy ride to a troublesome end. Moo-moo. . . Has Cow learned her lesson about living life in the fast lane? Moo?

Pairing two talented creators who managed to tell a complete story with just one word--MOO--this imaginative story will have readers laughing one moment and on the edge of their seats the next, as it captures the highs and lows of a mischievous cow's very exciting day.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "When her farmer puts a For Sale sign on his old red car, the cow takes it for a joy ride and lands in multiple bits of trouble. With the exception of a couple of landscape signs (such as the For Sale placard on the car), the entire text of this energetic and humorously anthropomorphic tale is composed of variations on the titular Moo. On some spreads, moo is rightfully drawn out to span the width of two pages after hitting a rock in the road, for example, cow and car become airborne while other moos are posited as questions or expressions of curiosity, glee, terror, and shame. Wohnoutka's brightly toned cartoon illustrations provide a huge variety of perspectives but keep the cow well centered and ever on the go. The final verbal joke will tickle little readers. This is a delightful visual adventure, easy to pair with Nancy E. Shaw and Margot Apple's Sheep in a Jeep (1988) and open to many sessions of independent rereading.--Goldsmith, Francisca Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Everyone secretly wants a sharp red sports car to drive around-including, apparently, one otherwise unassuming dairy cow. Her interest is piqued when her farmer puts his red car out on display with a sign that reads, "Car for Sale." "Moo?" the cow asks curiously; the second the farmer is out of sight, she shouts another "Moo!" and leaps into the driver's seat. "Moooooooo..." she croons happily as she tools along through green hills. "Moooo!" she cries in triumph, all four wheels off the ground. Risky? You bet! "Moo-moo," says the cow, dismayed, as the car hurtles toward a curve. She has some explaining to do to the cop whose patrol car she totals. "Moo-moo! Moo moo-moo moo!" The cow's one-word vocabulary is a great comic device, but Wohnoutka (Just Like My Papa) produces plenty of laughs, too, with big, bold graphics and comic book-style exclamations that even kids in the back row can see. When the cow attempts to shift blame to another animal, LaRochelle (How Martha Saved Her Parents from Green Beans) briefly lets her change her tune. An utterly fun moo-aloud. Ages 3-6. (Oct.)
