Cow in the Dark

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Whatever Cow starts, Cow finishes—this time during the night she is forced to find out what type of monster is making the loud noises outside the barn. Unlike the age-old Little Red Hen with her I'll-Do-It-Myself Determination, Cow—with Pig, Horse, Goats and Chicken staying inside—reluctantly moves into the dark with her All-right-All-right-I'll-Go attitude. With a lamp, Cow moves slowly toward the sounds and discovers that—like most children also afraid of noises at night eventually discover—a banging gate is the culprit. Just as in his other Cow book, Smith comically packages the story around a simple biblical truth, an absolute of comfort to which the reader can cling, no matter what his fear may be. As picture books most always end with the protagonist conquering, Cow peacefully sleeps because God is the Conqueror. Other than the slightly undersized font, shout another Hip-Hip, MOO-Ray for Cow! 2001, New Kids Media/Baker Book House, $7.99. Ages 4 to 8. Reviewer: Patricia Timbrook
