Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Why did the cow jump over the moon? These two do it in search of fresh grass and a chance to do the bunny hop. "Speed gleefully and rhythmically subverts the nursery classic and Root plays along zestily," said PW. Ages 4-8. (Nov.)
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 3-Speed offers a lively twist on a familiar nursery rhyme. Seeking greener pastures and bovine camaraderie, two cows from the Huckabuck Farm don the four Huckabuck kids' new black boots and leap to the moon. At its best, the text sways and swings with the excitement of the animals' summer-night frolics. Unfortunately, the rhythm flags at points and sinks to the ordinary. The double-page paintings, however, never let readers down. The cool cows with their sunglasses and button-back boots jump and prance, run and dance, and never lose an ounce of energy. Practice reading this aloud to maximize the rhythm, and you'll be able to give young listeners a whole new perspective on the expeditions of cows that jump over (or to) the moon.-Kathy Piehl, Mankato State University, MN
Ilene Cooper
For all those who ever wondered why the cow jumped over the moon, here's the answer in a fresh and funny picture book that soars through the sky on the strength of Speed's explosive mostly rhyming text. Millie and Maude are two cool cows from Huckabuck farm, heading to the mountaintop, the best jumping off spot for the moon. Wearing black button-back boots purloined from the Huckabuck kids who are following them apace, M and M hit the moon and its tasty meadow, where there are "cows in the craters, / cows and their cousins, / cows on vacation, dozens and dozens." The fun's not just in the meadow munching, but also in activities, like doing the Bunny Hop with bovine buddies. Meanwhile, back home, the Huckabuck kids are railing at the moon, still waiting for those shoes. This tale needs some pretty dynamic art, and Root comes through with motion-filled spreads featuring two black-and-white, shades-wearing cows. He catches all the humor, too; each out-of-this-world picture is a smile provoker. See the "Booklist" cover, May 1, 1995. Fun to read aloud, but watch out--little ones just might feel the urge to do some jumping over the moon themselves.
