Of course I could be getting various stories completely confused, but what I can tell you, is COWS! makes for a damn good and somewhat(understatement!) amusing read. Kids love it, and adults will find themselves chuckling along as well. So if you don't have too many bovine phobias (though you will afterwards), buy yourself a copy of COWS! and get reading. At the very least, it might help you survive when the day comes...
Or a sheep for that matter.
I don't even know where to begin with this book! I must say that Martin's writing style is very, very rare and unique and reminded me a tiny bit of Roland Dahl (one of my all time favorites!) In the way the story was written, and how colorful it was and how without pictures, the characters, and well, of course the cows, came to life before your eyes!
My 3 youngest children's ages are: 2,5, and 9, and they all enjoyed this book and giggled and giggled the entire way through.
Again, without illustrations, especially for the 2 youngest, the adjectives and descriptions and personality that came from the pages, already painted vivid pictures for them so much that they even remember the way Jimmy and his sheepdog looked, and of course the crazy cows who are planning to take over the world!
I especially thought it was a nice touch to add the witty, little narrations throughout the book from the author. Not only was this terribly clever, and funny, but it added the author's own personality to his ever so hilarious and fascinating book!
We recommend this to anybody who has an imagination, young and old, and even more so if you are still a child at heart!

I loved the plot of the story. My daughter thought it was brilliant. I urge everyone to read this book. It was so very original. You will not be disappointed. Trust me. It was a great read. Very entertaining. This book is recommended for everyone over the age of 8, as the whole 'cows try to take over the world' could frighten younger children. My daughter is 7 and she thought it was hysterical.

Did not find this book funny at all. I'm afraid that the grammatical and punctuation errors put me off reading the whole book - after 4 chapters I had had enough.Published on 11 July 2013 by fudge100
