Amazing Cows!: A Book of Bovinely Inspired Misinformation
Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungA work of pure obsession, "Amazing Cows!" celebrates cows and offbeat cowness with a miscellany of cow stories, cow poems, cow jokes, cow songs, cow games, cow comics, plus lively guest appearances by ducks, hippos, pigs, and excessive numbers of chickens. Full color.
PressestimmenNot since the heyday of Gary Larson has so much adoration been shown to bovines. With her trademark irreverence, Boynton offers an impassioned and hyperbolic ode to cows, replete with jokes, a spread devoted to cow fashion, a cow "myth" that takes place in ancient Athens ("though Fort Lauderdale is also a strong possibility"), limericks, and puns aplenty. One highlight is a comic "from the golden age of overambitious farm animals," featuring a shy research assistant whose alter ego is the cape-wearing superhero, Amazing Cow. Those seeking hard facts about cows are mooing up the wrong tree; those in the mood for "udder chaos" need look no further. It's pure fun. -- "Publisher's Weekly"
