Children's LiteraturePamela is a cow with an affection for pears that is almost an obsession. She turns up at lunch, on picnics, at the window, eating any pears she can find. Amy and Grandma are picking pears, trying to figure out how to save some from Pamela, who isn't stopped by fences or being tied to trees. Amy's bright idea is to feed Pamela pear after pear. After eating 600, she finally loses interest in them. But then, she starts eyeing the apples.... Who could resist the doleful face of Pamela on the jacket after pigging out on all those pears? Whatley paints a large cow who dominates the single and double-page scenes with very simple settings and people. The scene of the superabundance of peach-filled foods to tempt Pamela has the line of text following the treats to the next double-page sequence of Pamela's face as she finally eats herself silly. Simple fun for all. 2003, Star Bright Books, Ages 3 to 6.
