The Cow Who Climbed a Tree
Tina isn't like the other cows. She believes that the sky is the limit, that everything is possible. But her sisters aren't convinced - and when Tina tells them she has climbed a tree and met a dragon, they decide that her nonsense has gone too far. Off they go into the woods to find her ...and soon discover a world of surprises! A richly atmospheric, thoughtful and funny picture book from rising star Gemma Merino. Her debut picture book, THE CROCODILE WHO DIDN'T LIKE WATER, has won a string of awards and many fans all over the globe. Her deliciously expressive artwork is created using monoprint, coloured digitally.
Can Tina show her sisters that there is more to life than chewing grass?
