Marjorie the cow proudly enters her baby, Daisy, into a farmyard beauty contest strictly for cows. But Daisy isn't quite like the other baby cows—she's small and feathery, she has a beak, and she hatched from an egg! So there's no surprise that Daisy catches the judge's eye! But she's not the only one who attracts attention in this hilarious follow-up to the cow that laid an egg. Proud mom Marjorie is in store for an award of her own.

PreSchool-Grade 1—Marjorie, the bovine heroine of The Cow That Laid an Egg (HarperCollins, 2008), is back, and she's determined to enter her daughter, the mooing chick, in the barnyard beautiful baby contest. The only trouble is that the contest is strictly for cows. Daisy causes a ruckus when she slurps a worm off the judge's hat, earning her mother lots of derisive laughter, but Marjorie stops everyone cold with a simple declaration: "Daisy might not be like your babies—but she's mine, and I love her!" She wins the award for best mom and a smooch from Derek the bull. Ayto's busy cartoon illustrations match the off-kilter humor of the story. Though the climax lacks the punch of the first book, the heartfelt message and silly, big-eyed characters still provide plenty of appeal.—Kathleen Kelly MacMillan, Carroll County Public Library, MD
