Click, Clack, Moo: Cows that Type

illustrated by Betsy Lewin, written by Doreen Cronin, and published by Simon & Schuster



Farm-smart cows recycle outdated technology, a manual typewriter, to improve barnyard conditions. Lewin's illustrations help tell this tongue-in-cheek story about bovine agitators locking horns with Farmer Brown in a battle of will and wit that results in a comically satisfying conclusion.

"Seemingly simple watercolors and fluid, confident black lines supported by careful color choices, dramatic shadows, and dynamic page design combine to create a lighthearted pictorial experience," said Rockman. "Every detail is just right and every page gives a new perspective on this novel situation."
