Cow's Saturday morning stroll begins calmly enough. But when she suddenly finds herself on the wrong side of a particular pair of bloomers, all heck breaks loose--and soon she's also on the wrong side of the mailman, a group of kids, a wedding party, and, well, pretty much everyone else in town.

With zippy characters, clever language, and a terrific visual story line, this raucous book by bestselling author Mem Fox is certain to become a particular read-aloud favorite.
