FIND A COW NOW!
BY JANET STEVENS AND SUSAN STEVENS CRUMMEL
Ruff! Ruff! Yip! Yip! Dog is rounding up whatever he can find in his urban apartment, even chairs. He is also driving his bird companion crazy with the commotion. Bird sends him to the countryside to find something more appropriate to herd, such as a cow. But since dog has never seen a cow, he finds all the wrong animals.
This simple and engaging story is well told, but it is the vibrant and energetic artwork that makes it stand out in a crowd.

The simple but direct text, filled with onomatopoeic utterances, shows Dog’s dogged personality and Bird’s larger worldview. Brief but energetic, the tale ends as it began, but with Dog’s other prime instinct—to nap.
