From the Publisher
"Those darn cows!" said Tod. "I wish they'd just get lost!"
But when the cows do get lost, it's up to Tod Bean, his sister Jen Bean, and their black dog Zip to find them and bring them home. Tod and Jen learn that on a farm, everyone helps.
Short chapters and easy-to-read text make this story a perennial favourite.
About the Author
MARGARET LAURENCE was the author of many classic works of fiction, and twice won the Governor General's Award.
ANN BLADES, internationally-known Canadian children's author and illustrator, won the Canadian Association of Children's Librarians Book of the Year Award in 1972 for Mary of Mile 18. In 1978 she was the winner of the Canada Council Award for Children's Literature, for A Salmon for Simon.
Originally published in 1979 and 1980 as part of the "Kids of Canada" series, Six Darn Cows and Anna's Pet have both been long out of print. Now these two Canadian classics have been repackaged for a new generation of beginning readers....these two titles are perfect for children almost ready for chapter books. They also have nostalgic appeal for many parents as well.
