Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Sandra Boynton puts tots (and her legions of fans) in a silly moo-d with this soft cloth book! Shaped like a cow's head and loaded with zippy bells and whistles -- well, not necessarily a whistle but a button that makes a moo-ing sound when you push it -- Boynton's book delivers her brand of storytime magic in a great format. Toddlers will love checking out the cow's teeth, pink tongue, and horns, while simple text makes for cheerful reading. Without a doubt, this is an "udder" delight.
Publishers Weekly
Sandra Boynton fans will croon over the soft and squishy Moo Cow Book, a plush cow's head whose mouth opens wide to reveal a rhyme printed on six cuddly pages: "I'm your very own cow/ and I like to go moo!/ When I lick you right now/ it means `I adore you!' " A sound chip voices a moo at the appropriate moment and a terrycloth tongue offers readers a kiss. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

Biography

In the 1980s, it was hard to enter a gift shop without seeing Sandra Boynton's name. Her humorous pen-and-watercolor cartoons of hippos, ewes, and her famous turkeys (you know, symbolizing the human ones in life who can get you down) were emblazoned on cards, mugs, stickers, stationery...and of course, her wonderful, wacky books, the first of which was 1979's Hippos Go Berserk! .

Boynton began her career as a greeting card illustrator with aspirations of theater directing; but having a family changed her focus, and she began devoting herself full-time to art. Her board books, filled with goofy animal illustrations and rhyming verse, are toddler staples. But their appeal to adults is undeniable, and she has also written a number of humor books for the general public.

Given the rhythmic, buoyant style of her writing, it was only natural that Boynton would become involved in companion music to her books. From the '90s on, several of her titles included accompanying CDs, culminating in the 2002 release of Philadelphia Chickens, a CD-book extravaganza written with composer Michael Ford and featuring musical performances by several high-profile stars.

Who knows what lies ahead for this irrepressible force of nature? If there's one thing Sandra Boynton has proved in the course of her remarkably diverse career, it's that she's not lost her capacity to surprise us. (Thank heavens!)

    AWESOME if only it lasted long enough

    I saw this at my local barnes and nobles and I thought my then 17 month old would adore it, and he did until the microchip that gives the cow it's 'mmmoooooo' broke. It didn't even last but a couple of days. We didn't even use it extensively. Other than that, the book is agreat, and my son really enjoyed it!

    A Very Cute Book, but..

    My under 1 year old son loves the book. It's very attractive and soooooo soft. The only thing is that the little MOO sound on the inside of the book stopped working after a few presses.

    More Toy than Book

    It's true, there's not much to this book. Its charm lies in its clever construction - the cow has teeth and one page is a tongue - and its unbelievable softness. This is more a book to cuddle than a book to read. I'd gladly give it to an infant or, as the packaging suggests, a high-powered executive!

    Love this book, but wish it were longer

    My 9-month-old daughter loves book--it is soft and plush (redundant?) with a button that 'moos' and a soft terry cloth tongue that 'licks.' I know it's an infant book, but it's over as soon as it begins. My accompanying moo cow voice grows tired of saying the same thing over and over, but as long as my little one doesn't tire of hearing it, I guess that's secondary.
