Moo: a Novel

Zora is smelly, dirty, mean and stubborn. And yes, Zora is a cow. Don’t get me wrong though, it’s y648not all about a cow.

In Sharon Creech’s latest, Moo: a Novel, Reena and her brother, Luke, move with their parents from New York City to a small town in Maine, they have no idea what life has in store for them.They would have never imagined being “volunteered” to help Mrs. Falala. She is not your warm grandma-like friend, she is skeptical, critical and lonely. Mrs. Falala lives with her friends. Just who are her friends? They are: Paulie the pig, China the cat, Edna the snake and then there’s, Zora, the cow.

This a great story about friendship, kindness and a cow… Written with a fun word play combination of poem and prose intermingled.
