When it's time for Old Tom to milk Belinda the cow, who is usually milked by Tom's wife, Old Tom comes up with a surprising and hilarious solution.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2-Bessie and Old Tom enjoy their serene life in the country and vigorously attack their personal chores to keep things on an even keel; every day, she milks Belinda and he works in the garden. However, events take a drastic turn for Old Tom when Bessie visits her daughter in the city overnight. The highly responsible job of milking the cow is then delegated to him-and Belinda has a mind of her own. But this man refuses to be bested by the animal and comes up with the perfect solution: he puts on his wife's pink dress, rubber boots, and straw hat, and lo and behold, the cow thinks he's her beloved mistress. The final result is milk in abundance. Allen delivers a zany story of stubbornness and determination through a simple text that bounces along with a light and breezy tone. Its clever use of repetition and crisp sentences beg to be read aloud. The watercolor illustrations with India-ink crosshatchings are manipulated with great flair to create small, comical figures that are often shown in a series to create an animated effect. Children will revel in the sheer silliness and appreciate the creative solution.

From Publishers Weekly:

Cross-dressing is Old Tom's curious solution when a stubborn cow, Belinda, refuses to be milked by anyone but the farmer's errand-bound wife. Milk, mayhem and moire add up to gallons of fun. Ages 3-7.
