From Booklist:

Marjorie the cow feels just plain ordinary. She wishes she could ride bicycles and do handstands like the other cows, so the cunning chickens hatch a plan to help her out. The next morning, there’s an almighty commotion in the barnyard; Marjorie has laid an egg. The other cows are convinced it’s a trick—until Marjorie’s egg cracks open and the newly hatched chick bellows  “Moo.” This is a great comic take on the Ugly Duckling tale, with double-page spreads in ink, watercolor, and pencil showing comical farm creatures and humans, who are every bit as ridiculous as the animals. The fun is in the details, especially the black Holstein-like patches on Marjorie’s egg. Preschool-Grade 2. --Hazel Rochman
