This funny, science-based early reader is packed with fast-paced adventure and facts about poop. What more could a young reader want? Booklist declares that this book, like Zig and Wikki in Something Ate My Homework , "again strikes an effective balance between hijinks and education."
About the Author
Nadja Spiegelman likes cooking, writing, and decorating her apartment with furniture found on the street. She grew up in New York City, but loves going on vacation to the countryside. Once, when she was very young, a cow mistook her bright yellow dress for a flower and tried to eat her. She's still a little afraid of cows, but she'd like to learn how to milk one.
Trade Loeffler is also the creator of the all-ages web comic Zip and Li'l Bit, and lives in Brooklyn, New York, with his wife, son, and their dog, Boo. Trade grew up in Livermore, California, the home of "the World's Fastest Rodeo," an event complete with bull riding and wild-cow milking. But although he grew up in a "cow town," Trade never considered himself a cowboy - even though he does own two pairs of cowboy boots.

Reason for Reading: Ds read aloud to me as his reader.I love the Toon Books! I've read every one since they first came out but with this newest batch I've cut back to the Level 3s only as my son has outgrown the first two levels. Zig and Wikki are wonderful here and I love this book even more than their first appearance. This book was a little challenging for him to read but he enjoyed it so much that didn't bother him. He mostly reads in a monotone, or worse in a strange fake voice, but he was actually using expression reading Wikki's parts when he became frustrated with Zig. I could feel his anticipation as these funny parts of the story came up. He is a science-minded boy, so the themes presented interested him and of course you can always entertain a boy with poop! Though he did enjoy the part where they were actually in the cow the most. A great read and I think this series is going to appeal to a wide range of ages since it can easily be read aloud to younger children and the science-based presentations are funny and mature enough for upper elementary kids. Can't wait for the next Zig and Wikki book!
