Overview

A fun story written in a rhyming, limerick style, "When Cows Fly" is aimed at the younger set. Illustrated with finely cut paper illustrations, the story revolves around a boy in the woods, his pet cows and a massive pile of garbage that is accumulating nearby. Jacob takes matters into his own hands. He attaches wings to his cows and they go to work. What happens next is both funny and (a little bit ... ) gross. You can probably guess.

Meet the Author

Tom Watson lives in Chicago with his wife, daughter, and son. He also has a dog, as you could probably guess. The dog is a Labrador-Newfoundland mix. Tom says he looks like a Labrador with a bad perm. He wanted to name the dog "Put Your Shirt On" (please don't ask why), but he was outvoted by his family. The dog's name is Shadow. Early in his career Tom worked in politics, including a stint as the chief speechwriter for the governor of Ohio. This experience helped him develop the unique, storytelling narrative style of the Stick Dog books.

As an adult, I thought this was a cute story. But I downloaded it for the grandkids, and they had no interest in it at all. When I started reading it to the younger ones, their attention was quickly diverted. When I opened it for the older ones to read on their own, they read a page and turned up their noses.

I am all for taking better care of the Earth, but since when does that mean literally pooping all over someone who is creating a landfill? This is not the way to raise our children to treat others they disagree with, even if the other people are wrong. It wasn't even funny enough to make it worth it in that regard. Also, my son had no interest in this book.

Jake was a farmer and he had cows and they flew and watch out for their poop too. It was a bit strange novel. But I did enjoyed it anyways. ShelleyMA
