Pairing two talented creators who managed to tell a complete story with just one word—MOO—this imaginative picture book 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.
I haven't read this book yet, but I'm fascinated by the idea of telling an entire story with one word. I imagine that "moo" will have lots of different meanings on each page and will probably use different expressions.
This would be fun for practicing expression using punctuation with young kids.
If you were going to write a picture book using only one word, which one would you use? (This would be a great exercise for both picture books writers and students.
Would it be an animal sound?
Ba-gawk! (That's a chicken.)
Or could it be something else?

Thank you for such a great preview of our book! It has been a long time in the making (who would have thought that a one-word picture book could take over FIVE years to publish?), but both the illustrator, Mike Wohnoutka, and I are thrilled with the end result. Thank you for helping to usher in our new book with your mooooo-velout preview!
