Official Summary: “Hilda is FED-UP with being a cow. Spending all day doing not much but moo. There has to be something more she can do.
So she decides to be a sheep…
… then a pig
… and even a chicken.
Is the grass any greener on the other side?
Join Hilda, the fed-up cow, on her voyage of self-discovery in this daft but timeless story, written in rhyme.” – Goodreads
Review: I read this to my niece and for the whole story she paid attention and kept eyes on the screen. I was surprised I had her attention for so long, there was a lot of people around and normally she gets sidetracked easily. So pros up for that Author. Well done.
I really liked the rhythms they felt easy off the tongue while I was reading to her. I am dyslexic so I had the fear of messing up the words out loud, apart from a few words I stumbled on due to not being able to read them. It was really easy to read out loud.
The pictures were really cute and funny in places. I would have changed manure to poo because I still had to explain to her what manure was.

Sounds like a great story for little ones. I am sure my grandchildren would love it.
If you want me to pass along your email to the Author just let me know.
Seriously though, it sounds like a really cute way to teach a valuable lesson about accepting yourself.
