A madcap, yet moving, story about having the courage of one's convictions, even when others doubt you, from the creator of 'Albie', Andy Cutbill, and the award-winning illustrator, Russell Ayto.

Marjorie the cow doesn't feel very special. She can't ride bicycles or do cartwheels like the other cows. But one morning, Marjorie is astonished to discover something extraordinary...

She's laid an egg!

But does the baby inside the egg really belong to Marjorie? Emotions run high in the farmyard as everyone waits to find out...

MEDIA REVIEWS

Praise for The Cow That Laid an Egg:

`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.'
The Bookseller

"A Charming, comical tale." Starred Editor's Choice
Junior

`A wonderfully madcap story with wacky illustrations.' Nursery World

`Children will love the sheer craziness of this story, and Russell Ayto's spectacular illustrations are the perfect accompaniment.' Alison Green (for Child Education

Praise for `The Witch's Children', illustrated by Russell Ayto:

`This book has been wonderfully designed and the text is in perfect harmony with the incredible funny illustrations' Booktrust Best Books Guide
