WITH A FOREWORD BY ALAN BENNETT
‘A lovely, thoughtful little book about the intelligence of cows.’ James Rebanks, author of The Shepherd’s Life
Cows are as varied as people. They can be highly intelligent or slow to understand, vain, considerate, proud, shy or inventive.
Although much of a cow’s day is spent eating, they always find time for extra-curricular activities such as babysitting, playing hide and seek, blackberry-picking or fighting a tree.
This is an affectionate record of a hitherto secret world.
A small classic.
An extraordinary book about cows and how they live; they have family groups and they certainly have friends.
A delightful, spry and neatly crafted book.
No one who has read her book will look at cows in the same light again.
