I've enjoyed every book I've read by Sharon Creech! This one was about a brother and sister, Luke and Reena, who befriend a cranky old lady and start caring for her animals, including a stubborn cow named Zora. Reena, born and raised in NYC doesn't consider herself outdoorey and certainly doesn't know how to care for a cow. This novel in verse tells the story of Reena and Zora. Well worth the read.

Quick read, lots of white space. Wish I had slowed down, because I thought it ended a bit quickly. Fun to read.

Fast-paced story following a families'move to Maine told through lyrical poems. The characters are rich and dimensional.

Sharon Creech is one of my favorite author. She always introduces places to her young readers and connects them to the nature, animals and people. This book is the same, very uplifting. Not only the younger readers will like it, the adults will enjoy it too.

While the story is written in prose, it emphasizes Reena's frustrated moments. Great story. Contains reality, humor, and little sadness. Great story for kids in Elementary and early Middle School. Heck, I liked it and I'm an adult. Reena is new to life in Maine. Zora, "Moo," helps her adjust to her new life. Great story.

I'm loving the blend of light humor with realism. City girl moves to the country and learns how to show a cow. Its written in poetry form, but its the fun kind where words sprawl across the page in style. This is one of those books that I wish was written as a regular book, but I think the poetry style will work better for our younger generation. A touching book and I absolutely fell in love with the cow. Someone did a wonderful job picking out this book! Crowd appeal with a unique story and rich characters. The ending packs a punch too. Good quick read I'd highly recommended

Verse and narrative storytelling about a family that escapes the big city to settle in a small community in Maine, and how caring for the animals leads to new friends and fun.

I find this book a bit tricky to review, because my feelings about it changed quite a bit as I was reading. It's a really fast read, since lots of its chapters are in verse (mingled with other chapters of prose), and at the beginning of the book, I was solidly on-board -- a city family moves to a small town in coastal Maine! Yes! I'm here for this! Then, enter the cow. (Yes, really.) This is when I got bored. And yet, by the end, I was back onboard again -- I grew attached to the cow, and the role it played in the story, and the relationship arc for various characters. So, I think my review is: your mileage may vary. I have no idea who will like this book, and who won't. (Helpful, right?)
