Booklist Review
When her farmer puts a For Sale sign on his old red car, the cow takes it for a joy ride and lands in multiple bits of trouble. With the exception of a couple of landscape signs (such as the For Sale placard on the car), the entire text of this energetic and humorously anthropomorphic tale is composed of variations on the titular Moo. On some spreads, moo is rightfully drawn out to span the width of two pages after hitting a rock in the road, for example, cow and car become airborne while other moos are posited as questions or expressions of curiosity, glee, terror, and shame. Wohnoutka's brightly toned cartoon illustrations provide a huge variety of perspectives but keep the cow well centered and ever on the go. The final verbal joke will tickle little readers. This is a delightful visual adventure, easy to pair with Nancy E. Shaw and Margot Apple's Sheep in a Jeep (1988) and open to many sessions of independent rereading.--Goldsmith, Francisca Copyright 2010 Booklist
