This uplifting New York Times bestseller reminds us that if we’re open to new experiences, life is full of surprises. Fans of Newbery Medal winner Sharon Creech’s Love That Dog and Hate That Cat will love her newest tween novel, Moo. Following one family’s momentous move from the city to rural Maine, an unexpected bond develops between twelve-year-old Reena and one very ornery cow. When Reena, her little brother, Luke, and their parents first move to Maine, Reena doesn’t know what to expect. She’s ready for beaches, blueberries, and all the lobster she can eat. Instead, her parents “volunteer” Reena and Luke to work for an eccentric neighbor named Mrs. Falala, who has a pig named Paulie, a cat named China, a snake named Edna—and that stubborn cow, Zora. This heartwarming story, told in a blend of poetry and prose, reveals the bonds that emerge when we let others into our lives.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Creech’s spare narrative creates vivid, emotion-packed images of landscapes, characters, and ‘that / wild-eyed / heifer,” Zora, that will stay with readers.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Creech offers a memorable family story featuring an especially difficult cow…A heartfelt tale.” School Library Journal (starred review)
“Playful use of words sets this novel apart.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“Offers a refreshing change of pace from most realistic fiction.” Booklist
“The quick pace and accessible narrative will win over reluctant readers, and it’s an easy pick for fans of Creech’s Love That Dog or animal lovers looking for a quick yet moo-ving read.” Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
“With Moo’s small cast of characters and Sharon Creech’s customary poetic frugality with words, the importance of the audiobook’s narration quality is outsized. Brittany Pressley’s youthful voice is perfect for the two siblings. She also does a fair job with Maine accents.” AudioFile
