    I m going ahead and rating this five stars because I absolutely loved it The fact that it was inspired by a true story of a cow escaping the slaughterhouse is just wonderful and has prompted me to find a farm sanctuary close to home to donate to The animal voices that narrate this story are fun and the illustrations are adorable Do judge this book by it s cover because it is just as cute as it looks Perfect for all animal lovers

    First sentence How would I describe her in a word Premise plot Audrey is not a milk cow or a work cow She s a food cow But though her so called destiny is set the slaughterhouse inevitable she will not go down without a fight This poet cow is on a mission to escape and find freedom But one cow on her own seems doomed to fail, but a cow with friendswellanything is possible with a community of support and knowledge This one is written

    I thoroughly enjoyed reading this with my 12 year old A story similar to Charlotte s Web but written in the same vein as a VH1 Behind the Music episode, it s incredibly fun to read aloud and easy to switch character voices as they re announced at each new paragraph Both fun and endearing, this was pure delight to get into during the frustrating Covid 19 quarantine.

    After reading the first half, I thought I would never share this book with my grade 4 students Would it not be traumatic to read about a dinner cow trying to escape her one way trip to Abbat War But then the second half of her story of her freedom, recapture, and saving was fun and the voices of the characters were unique I hope I can create adequate voices as I read it Based on a true story.

    My husband read this aloud because he does fantastic narrative voices I think if I would have read this myself it could have been a bit long winded but with different voices, it had a Creature Comforts effect and was quite enjoyable.

    Did this as a read aloud with grade 3 4 students It started out slow and difficult for them to follow, but as we got into the book they really enjoyed it.

    This is the third selection for a children s book club I am facilitating This was recommended by my local branch NYPL children s librarian and it is a great choice Told from multiple points of view, we learn about Audrey, a Charolais cow who will be taken to Abbot s War abbatoir A plot is hatched to save her, and the story is told in the form of interviews with the animals involved as well as the people There are so many topics for discussion

    This may be a bit deep but I cried at times in this book as I found it to be mirroring tales of concentration camps I m a vegetarian as is my 6 year old son and I read this to him I had hoped it would incite compassion in him even though he s already very compassionate.Such a cute and wonderful tale and I only wish all cows had the same happy ending as Audrey
