Prudence looks like a full-time cow-she wanders through pastures, she swats flies, and she lines up for supper. But Prudence is a part-time cow-she is also a scientist, an architect, and an inventor, studying and building and dreaming and creating. To the other cows in the herd, Prudence is a bit too part-time. She's just too different to be part of the herd. At first Prudence tries to fit in, suppressing all her scientific smarts and imaginative inventing.
