The squishy toy Holstein is back for another adventure. This time, Cow's mother (a hippopotamus vase) has chipped her nose and cannot go to the store. Cow takes the list, and so begins a zany trip through the aisles. The well-placed, nearly full-page, vivid color photographs on a white background show Cow taking the school bus to the market, riding on the cart, selecting produce ("Yum, bananas" reads the caption under a picture of pineapples), addressing fish that stare back ("Excuse me, ladies, where would I find the mayonnaise?"), going through the checkout, and arriving back home to a treat of "ice cream" that looks an awful lot like frozen peas. This silly romp is sure to delight children.
