“This book is bold, original, and funny, and should be part of every picture-book collection.” —School Library Journal, starred review
“An utterly fun moo-aloud.” —Publishers Weekly
“Good barnyard fun, with nods to Mo Willems’ aspirational Pigeon and Doreen Cronin and Betsy Lewin’s enterprising Duck.” —Kirkus Reviews"A delightful visual adventure, easy to pair with Nancy E. Shaw and Margot Apple’s Sheep in a Jeep (1988) and open to many sessions of independent rereading." —Booklist
