In poetry that winds and wends like a creek through a farmer's field, we journey through one lovely day in Buttercup's life. Whether she is ruminating on the mud beneath her feet or the moon and the stars in the blue-black sky, she draws us deep into her rich and wonderful world.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely, just like its title I saw this book on the shelf and was just blown away by its beautiful poetic language, and colourful drawings. My children loved it and we both have learned new words and ways of expressing ourselves. I hope the sisters continue to create more spectacular books like this one.

Read from the Book

I love this day,
the grass at my knees,
the buzz of the bees,
the fluzz of the flies,
switching my tail
and making pies.

It is so, so fine
to be bovine
to be a cow
right here
right now.
