Cowabunga! I’m a Winner


It’s a mooving experience to win a giveaway, especially when it’s a cow-themed picture book.

How could I resist entering the giveaway for Mootilda’s Bad Mood on Jilanne Hoffman’s site?

If you’ve been following my blog, you know I have a penchant for cow jokes having written a book of udder nonsense (over 100 cow jokes). While publishers and agents are ruminating whether they will publish my book, Kirsti Call and Corey Rosen Schwartz have teamed with Claudia Ranucci to create Mootida’s Bad Mood, and what a moovelous fun read!

Mootilda wakes up with her day all gone wrong and even gets the other farm animals to join in with their own moody issues. Then, Mootilda comes to a realization and is able to help others with their own mood concerns.

Everyone deals with a bad mood now and then, but it’s quite a sight when little ones get in a snit. Children will no doubt laugh at Mootilda’s fits of frustration, perhaps recognizing a bit how having a cow over small matters is somewhat silly. Definitely a fun story time book with meaningful discussion opportunities.

That is one pouty cow!
