About the Author
Sharon Creech has written twenty-one books for young people and is published in over twenty languages. Her books have received awards in both the U.S. and abroad, including the Newbery Medal for Walk Two Moons, the Newbery Honor for The Wanderer, and Great Britain's Carnegie Medal for Ruby Holler.
Before beginning her writing career, Sharon Creech taught English for fifteen years in England and Switzerland. She and her husband now live in Maine, "lured there by our grandchildren," Creech says.
Newbery Medalist Creech touches on themes of loss, friendship, and belonging in this appealing tale. The book's playful use of words sets this novel apart. Fans of Love That Dog will find much to love in this story of a girl, a cow, and so much more. -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
As Reena learns that a little kindness works wonders for both people and animals, Creech's spare narrative creates vivid, emotion-packed images of landscapes, characters, and "that/ wild-eyed/ heifer," Zora, that will stay with readers. -- Publishers Weekly (starred review)
Creech offers a memorable family story featuring an especially difficult cow... A heartfelt tale that will be embraced by Creech's fans, work well as a classroom read-aloud, and find a spot in book groups. -- School Library Journal (starred review)
The quick pace and accessible narrative will win over reluctant readers, and it's an easy pick for fans of Creech's Love That Dog or animal lovers looking for a quick yet moo-ving read. -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
