Praise for The Cow That Laid an Egg, illustrated by Russell Ayto:
‘The Cow That Laid an Egg… had me in stitches. More than just a silly story about a cow who thinks she’s laid an egg, there’s something deeper here about the idea of family, but it’s so integral to the story that you don’t feel as thought you’ve been hit over the head with the sledgehammer of worthiness.’
"A Charming, comical tale." Starred Editor's Choice
