First Week at Cow School

By Andy Cutbill, Illustrated by Russell Ayto

Starting school is full of fun in this reassuring, laugh-out-loud story from the creators of The Cow That Laid an Egg and The Best Cow in Show.

Marjorie the cow feels jolly proud when her daughter, Daisy, starts school. But lessons aren’t as easy as they seem… Daisy can’t hoof paint or swat flies like the other cows, and cowpat training is a disaster!

Yet, Marjorie soon discovers that Daisy has a surprising talent to make her stand out from the herd!
