I purchased this children's book because I wanted to write a picture book about zany cows after reading FARMER MCPEPPERS AND HIS MISSING MILK COWS, which Steve Gray illustrated. I was delighted when I read COW CAN'T SLEEP and recognized Mr. Gray's laughable cow as the star of this new title.
Young children who are wired to appreciate absurd illustrations will not only laugh at Cow, but also the other inane farm animals in the book.
This is a book with few words, but words that kids love, like slurp and snuggle and gurgle and thud.
