Chilly Milly Moo

Milly Moo is different from the other cows–she doesn’t give milk. Not until a cold and blustery day rages does Milly find out what she can give.

Fiona Ross‘s illustrations stand out with their muted colours and strong lines. The typeface emphasizes the story and moves around the page, making it fun to read. Play with synonyms (nope, zilch, nada, diddly-squat) or compare the story to Fair Cow.
