Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Vicki Foote
Hilda Mae Heifer likes to sing, but lately she has been feeling sad. Her friends think her mooing sounds miserable. Her friends, the hen and the pig, decide that she is probably lonely and does not like singing by herself. They make plans to help find a singing partner for her. They audition several animals that all think they have wonderful voices. Then the four animals like the way they sound together, so they make plans to add more animals to form a chorus. They become the judges, and they listen to the sounds of the frog, a mouse, and others. The judges express their opinion with little amusing comments. Next all the cows gather around and join the chorus. The judges think it sounds great and hope that Hilda likes it, too. They surprise Hilda with their singing, but she surprises them when she tells them that she has given up singing and decides to dance instead. In the cute ending, Hilda makes so much noise with her dancing that the pig calls for an ice pack for his head. Children will enjoy all the animal sounds that abound throughout the book, and the illustrations, cheery and comical, fit the text perfectly. This is a great read-aloud that is good for laughs.

K-Gr 2

Hilda Mae Heifer is down in the dumps, and her moo sounds oh-so-blue. The extended farm family that helped her find her voice in Moo Who? (HarperCollins, 2004) recognize that they can't stand by while she sounds so low. Rather than listen to her tune-free wails-or plug their ears-they conclude that misery loves company and swiftly organize auditions for a chorus to harmonize with-or perhaps drown out-Hilda Mae's sad song. Each animal's moment in the spotlight features a familiar sound: "Baaa-baaa," "nay nay nay-nay-nay," "squeak squeak SQUEAK," "ribbit." The judges at the well-attended auditions are strangely reminiscent of those found, for instance, on American Idol: the rooster is always complimentary; the duck invariably cries, "You nailed it!" The pig finds fault; he's HARSH-while the cat calls, "Next!" When the cows come home, they learn that Hilda Mae has given up singing in favor of another talent. Palatini's prose is poetic, quirky, inventive, and just plain fun. If the words "baffled," "bewildered," and "befuddled" are called for, she plunks them down on the page. Graves escalates the sophisticated silliness with his wacky, superbly crafted, almost 3-D illustrations. (You've got to love Hilda Mae's huge red pompadour.) The gorgeous colors and absurd perspectives take this tale to another level. It's a great day at the farm.-Susan Weitz, formerly at Spencer-Van Etten School District, Spencer, NY
