Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Brindle Cow, a kindly sort, is strolling to town, listening to the peal of the church bells. A wedding is set to take place there, but many important folks-the organist, the pastor, and the florist, for instance-are going to be detained. Brindle Cow encounters them and other animal characters along the way. One by one, each frets about being late for the wedding, and Brindle Cow offers her broad back. Each clambers on, one piled on top of the other. The haphazardly stacked entourage proceeds into town, singing sweet wedding songs, and arrives at the church. Brindle Cow has saved the day. . .for her very own wedding! Iza Trapani's watercolor illustrations, set in a country atmosphere, are old-fashioned and endearing, a perfect accompaniment to Eva Bunting's pleasantly rhyming tale. It is hard not to be drawn to the book's engaging characters. And who doesn't like a happy ending? 2003, Whispering Coyote/Charlesbridge, Ages 2 to 5.
— Robbin Gould
School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-Miss Brindle Cow sashays down a forest path as she hears wedding bells ring in the distance. She runs into a pig, a turtle, a duck, a rabbit, a chipmunk, and a thrush. Each animal has a role to play in the ceremony and all have a reason for running late, so the cheerful bovine happily carries all of the creatures in a precarious pile on her back. The rhyming text grows ever more buoyant as they approach the church and the cow announces that she is the bride. The watercolor paintings pleasantly evoke an English countryside in greens, browns, and yellows. However, it is somewhat discordant to hear the cow announce, "I am woman. I am strong. I'm happy that you came along." This consciousness-raising sentiment does not match the silliness of the story and the illustrations. An additional purchase.-Susan Pine, New York Public Library Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

    A MERRY, WARM STORY

    Few occasions are as exciting or as nerve wracking as a wedding. Further, that's one occasion when everyone wants each detail to be perfect. In lilting rhyme Eve Bunting relates the story of a wedding that almost wasn't. As Miss Brindle Cow strolls along the path to town she listens to the wedding bells of Saint Michelle. She's surprised to find Pig sitting beneath a tree woefully examining a bandaged knee. Pig's the church organist, you see, and now can't get to the wedding. Fortunately Brindle Cow is very kind hearted. She invites Pig to ride to the church on her back. It's not too long before they spy Pomeroy the turtle. He's the florist. Unfortunately a very slow florist who fears there'll be no flowers for the wedding at the rate he's going. You guessed it - Brindle Cow invites Pomeroy to join Pig on her back. Before long a stranded duck, rabbit, and chipmunk join the pair riding to the church. Thanks to the goodness of the Brindle Cow all arrived in plenty of time for the nuptials. You're going to have to guess who the bride might be. 'The Wedding' is a light hearted and loving look at a very special day.
