Editor Reviews
From the Back Cover Zora was chasing us. Mooooooooo. Mooooooooo. When we reached the gate Luke scrambled up and over it instead of through it and I was trying to follow when Zora's ENORMOUS HEAD loomed up below me and bumped me into the air When twelve-year-old Reena, her little brother, Luke, and their parents move to Maine, Reena doesn't know what to expect. She's ready for beaches, blueberries, and all the lobster she can eat. Instead, her parents volunteer Reena and Luke to work for an eccentric neighbor named Mrs. Falala, who has a pig named Paulie, a cat named China, a snake named Edna--and one very ornery cow named Zora. From Newbery Medal winner Sharon Creech comes a lovely and uplifting story of how a little kindness can change lives, reminding us that if you're open to new experiences, life offers surprises. Sharon Creech has written twenty 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. Moo was inspired by our mutual love of Maine and by our granddaughter's involvement in a local 4-H program. We have all been enchanted with the charms of cows.
