Moo dreams of becoming a sailor.
Little does she know,
when she sets off toward the sea,
that the first crew she joins
will be composed of cats.
Or that she herself will be hailed
by a shipload of pirate steers
as their captain¹s dairy queen.
It's amoozing where a dream
can take a girl --
a truth which Lisa Wheeler
and Ponder Goembel relish here
in rollicking words
and witty, windblown pictures.

About Lisa Wheeler

Lisa Wheeler's first book was the wonderful Wool Gathering: A Sheep Family Reunion, illustrated by Frank Ansley. She likes puns, "especially bad ones. When you find a good cow pun," she advises, "be sure to milk it for all it's worth." Born in the Allegheny mountains near Pittsburgh, Lisa's greatest adventure has been raising a family in hill-less Brownstown, Michigan, a suburb of Detroit.
