Original, quirky and very witty, the hilarious story of 'Moo' - the amazing versatile language of cows - cannot fail to raise a smile. There are high moos and low moos; there are moos that are jiggly and moos that are wriggly. Moos that sound funny through a funnel and even odder in a tunnel. Deborah Fajerman is a gifted new, young author/artist whose lively text and spirited illustrations mark her out as a picture book creator of ingenuity and wit.

If you've ever wondered what cows are saying to each other (or even if you haven't), How to Speak Moo! by Deborah Fajerman could be the solution.
This highly original picture book, illustrated by the author, is a tongue-in-cheek "field guide" to the hidden complexity and shades of meaning in the word "moo", despite it being the only word in cow vocabulary. Written in rhyming couplets, we discover that "moo" sounds very different depending on the context and location: "Cows don't make any noise at all when they watch the telly/But Moo sounds very wobbly when they wobble on a jelly". The accompanying illustrations demonstrate these differences, often showing cows doing particularly human activities. Much of the humour comes from details in the illustrations: a classroom of cow pupils shows the back row occupied by cows having a sneaky nap, passing notes and painting their nails (or should that be hooves?). Delicacies being consumed by a group of cows on a picnic include "Cow Cake" and "Moosli" (groan).
How to Speak Moo is suitable for children aged four upwards, although it's just as likely to appeal to anyone with a healthy sense of the absurd.--Alison DruryReview:
"A fun storyline and wonderful illustrations make "How to Speak Moo" a delight to read. Young children absolutely love trying to moo along in an appropriate style for each illustration. A fun read with lots of opportunities for silly mooing along with your children, "How to Speak Moo is highly recommended."" --Harold McFarland, "The Midwest Book Review"
