What a delightful book. Written in rhyme this fun story tells the tale of two very overweight cows who are BFFs and whose only goal in life is to eat, eat, eat. "One more blade to go please". Marigold and Petal have literally eaten their way out of house and home. They look down and only a few pathetic blades of grass remain at their hooves. They think that they just might starve to death. Oh nooooo! Can't let that happen. They look across the fence and a huge, luscious field of green grass awaits ... as far as their cow-eyes can see. It is a diner's delight, a feast made in heaven. Their tastebuds kick into action and the two devise a plan to escape to other side of the gate where the whole wide world is theirs to eat. Marigold kick-starts the plan into action by encouraging Petal to kick down the gate. That will be easy-peasy right? Oh oh... it doesn't open. Marigold then has another brilliant idea but will that do the trick? These two rotund little heifers are determined to exit. You will laugh out loud at what happens next... guaranteed. This book is full of humour and just plain fun all-round. The illustrations are expressive and action-packed. When they are married to the text the result is a brilliant story that will have kids (and adults) chuckling at the antics within the covers. Friendship comes in many shapes and sizes and these two little dumplings plan to expand their waistlines in life together... one blade at a time. I loved it! Highly recommended.
