    There is a cutest baby cow contest. Margie enters her baby (who looks just like a baby chicken). When the farmer's wife is judging and figures out it is a chicken, she faints. Everyone laughs. Margie says, I don't care, I love her anyway. The bull gives her the 1st place for being the best mooo-ther.

    Andy Cutbill provides readers with a humorous look into a fictitious motherly cow's life, who wants to enter her unlikely baby chicken into a beautiful baby contest. The other cows in the story make fun of Marjorie's (the mother cow) baby chicken (Daisy), and consistently gossip behind her back. Marjorie decides to continue through the contest, and is ultimately awarded a best in show when Daisy sallowed a big nasty worm.

Marjorie decides to continue through the contest, and is ultimately awarded a best in show when Daisy sallowed a big nasty worm. Although this book appears to make an attempt at character development, it fails in doing so because of the lack of a story line. Aside from the constant gossiping and strange contests, Russell Ayto illustrates very creative and complimentary pictures to the text, which may be enough to hold listeners' attention through the duration of the book. If teachers read this book to their classrooms, I think an appropriate discussion may begin with asking the students to recall who the main characters were, and then following up with why they think Marjorie decided to enter her baby into the beautiful baby contest even though she did not have a calf.

    Cow learns that there is a beautiful baby contest on the farm "strickly cows only", and of course she wants to enter her little one... who happens to be a chicken. Many children may wonder why in the heck this cow has a chicken for a baby if they are not familiar with the first book, "The Cow Who Laid an Egg". Then again, some kids won't even give it a second thought. I really do not think that it is a stand alone book though. You really need to read the first book before you tackle this one.

Cute story though, and touching too, because every mother knows, you love your baby no matter what.

    As a follow-up to The Cow That Laid An Egg, Marjorie enters her baby Daisy in a beauty contest only allowed for the cows on the farm to enter their calves. The farmer's wife is the judge, and some unlikely fun occurs. Again, Russell Ayto's whimsical illustrations make these stories. They are so fun to read because of the funny story line and the illustrations seal the deal. Marjorie's antics will have your child laughing hysterically.

    I loved the first book in this series called "The Cow That Laid An Egg"...but this second book fell really flat for me. It was a strange premise, it suddenly had this really big moral lesson, and then a very weird ending...I finished reading it to my 5 year old and we both agreed it was strange. We haven't had any "second" readings...bad sign in our house.

    Oh hey, I didn't realize this book was a sequel. The story makes a lot more sense now! I thought this book was strangely sweet. This cow has a chicken for a baby, and y'know what? Just because the chicken is regarded as "the other" doesn't make that chicken any less of a child to that cow. Dagnabit! I loved it.

    Not as good as "The Cow That Laid An Egg" -- I thought this sequel was pretty disjointed. I forgot who Derek was between the first page and the last. Still, those familiar with the first book may enjoy this one making an appearance in storytime.

    Very funny and touching sequel to The Cow that Laid and Egg. The page "There were babies everywhere!" has my little boy in hysterics every time. We have to spend 5 minutes just looking at all the cow pictures. We like this.

    I really liked that this book delivered its message without hammering you over the head with it - it lets the story speak for itself. And the text and illos work together really nicely. Plus, my kids loved it. Bonus.

    Marjorie is a cow who knows what is important. When there is a barnyard baby-cow competition, her pride in her baby (who is a little different) wins her best Moother. Modern, cartoony illus.

    A cute follow up to The Cow that Laid an Egg. I really love Russell Ayto's illustrations... they kind of remind me of Shaun the Sheep for some reason. I loved the page with all the baby cows!

    Disappointing because the first book was really funny. I do like the line "Daisy might not be like your babies. But she's mine and I love her", but aside from that this is pretty flat.

    It was a very sweet book with a beautiful message. A great book for mothers of special needs children or children who are adopted. The message sets this children's book apart from the rest.

    The drawings made me laugh, especially the one with the cows that were laughing and pointing.
