But the other mothers are starting to talk… Daisy isn’t quite like the other babies; she’s small and feathery, and she can’t even chew the cud yet. Is there something Marjorie should know?

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.’
