I found this story quite funny, but disliked the madcap and almost chaotic style of the illustrations.
This is a sequel to "The Cow That Laid An Egg." Marjorie, the mother cow did indeed lay an egg and out of it hatched, Daisy. Daisy the cow, just happens to look like a chicken...yes, you heard correctly...a chicken. It is time for little Daisy to go off to Cow School and the first week is very hectic for her. She has great difficulty fitting in and doing what the other cows are capable of achieving. Doesn't surprise me much when she is not a cow! You have to give her an A+ for trying. She cannot hoof paint, swat flies with her tail, her cud chewing is a disaster and don't get me started on cowpat training. She struggles and limps along and then begins to feel defeated and like a failure. One skill that is dangled before her by Miss Gold-Top, her teacher, puts her in at "high" school level...and it be"hooves" her to give it a try in front of the rest of the class. She passes with "flying" colours. This book teaches us that individuality is special and we should appreciate that characteristic in ourselves and especially in others around us. The book gives a wonderful life lesson of acceptance all submerged in wacky, fun illustrations that are very appealing to the funny bone for sure. You will laugh and giggle as you follow Daisy (and her mom) through her first week at Cow School.
