Stinking adorable! ( )
  lissabeth21 | Oct 3, 2017 |
In my opinion, this is a great children's book. It's a story about a boy who gets licked at night by a cow and wakes up with a cowlick. The book has creative writing, language, and pictures.
The writing on each page flows because it rhymes in a jingle. When the cow is sneaking up the rhyme states "To the bedside she comes sneaking. Lifting covers, gently peeking." Each page has one line that describes a whole scene short and sweet. The author used a variety of adjectives that make the story more interesting. When describing the little boy sleeping the text says "Sees a face so soft and sweet. Framed with hair so smooth and neat." When the cow licks the boy it says "Sluuuurp!" written across the page. The author definitely did a good job at using descriptive words that make it seem more realistic.
The pictures represent what the text describes perfectly. If a student wasn't able read, they would understand the story line. In the begging, it says "clip-clop, clip-clop down the hall. Funny shadow on the wall," and it's shown with a cow tiptoeing and a shadow behind him on the wall. Every page describes an action of the cow, with a picture showing the action. The pictures look like the author painted the scenes. The pictures are simple but do a great job at telling the story. ( )

I always love reading this in storytime because I get the kids, and even the parents, to give a big slurpy cow lick. They usually laugh at the end especially to see the dog's fur messed up too. ( )
