Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Joan Elste
This cute story begins with Marjorie the cow waking with a jolt as the farmer's wife banged away, hammering up a poster stating that there would be a beautiful baby contest that afternoon. Naturally, all the lady cows were excited. Daisy was reminded of her own beautiful baby who was so special to her and was hatched from an egg, had feathers and played with the chickens. Naturally, the other mother cows got right to work teaching their babies how to ready themselves for the big contest. They gossiped about Daisy being small for a cow, but Marjorie would hear none of it. She knew Daisy was perfect. When the farmer's wife came to inspect the babies to pick the very best, she bent down when she finally reached Daisy. A worm suddenly appeared in her hat and with a big gulp, Daisy swallowed it whole. The story only gets funnier and more bizarre from that point on. Kids will love the craziness and outlandish illustrations. Full of laughs, the story and illustrations will certainly keep the pages turning. Reviewer: Joan Elste
School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 1

Marjorie, the bovine heroine of The Cow That Laid an Egg (HarperCollins, 2008), is back, and she's determined to enter her daughter, the mooing chick, in the barnyard beautiful baby contest. The only trouble is that the contest is strictly for cows. Daisy causes a ruckus when she slurps a worm off the judge's hat, earning her mother lots of derisive laughter, but Marjorie stops everyone cold with a simple declaration: "Daisy might not be like your babies-but she's mine, and I love her!" She wins the award for best mom and a smooch from Derek the bull. Ayto's busy cartoon illustrations match the off-kilter humor of the story. Though the climax lacks the punch of the first book, the heartfelt message and silly, big-eyed characters still provide plenty of appeal.-Kathleen Kelly MacMillan, Carroll County Public Library, MD

Kirkus Reviews
Marjorie, the bovine paragon of steadfast motherhood from 2008's The Cow That Laid an Egg, returns with the other denizens of her farmyard. This time, she's awakened by the farmer's wife hanging a sign announcing a beautiful baby contest-for cows only. Marjorie knows her baby Daisy has always been a special cow . . . ever since Daisy hatched from her egg. The farm is a-flutter as the cows prepare their calves. The farmer's wife appears to judge, but Daisy gulps down a worm dangling from the judge's hat. "A ch-ch-chicken!" sputters the farmer's wife before she faints. In the face of her cohorts' laughter, Marjorie says, "Daisy might not be like your babies...but she's mine, and I love her!"-earning her a best-mom ribbon from Derek the bull. Cutbill's sweet story of motherly devotion and interspecies adoption is pepped-up to cartoon perfection by Ayto's spiky, mixed-media collage illustrations. Plenty of goofy details will have storytimers saying, "Once Moo-re please!" (Picture book. 4-7)

    Her love for her child is blind to the fact that her child looks different. A great story for all children.
