Cows Go Boo!

(2) PS Illustrated by Fred Blunt. On placid Farmer George's farm, all is as it should be, with pigs oinking and sheep baaing. Enter two mischievous cows, who jump out at Farmer George from behind a tree: "BOO!" Farmer George, so startled he jumps out of his boots, tells them, "NO. NO. NO!...cows do not go BOO...Please try to get it right." This pattern continues, with the cows repeatedly disrupting the peace and order of the farm. Then Farmer George has an idea--he'll send the miscreants to his cornfield, where their "BOO!"s will scare away the pesky crows. Of course, the tricky twosome reverts to their regular mooing, and it's left to the now-wild-eyed farmer to do the scaring off. Comical and energetic cartoon illustrations imbue all the characters with personality and make the most of the story's slapstick humor and interrupting cows.
