Praise for The Cow Who Fell to Earth

Haven't met a child who didn't LOVE these books. Sweet, funny, odd in a life-affirming way. Like children.

Caitlin Moran

There is something so refreshing and slightly cheeky about Nadia Shireen's sense of humour which makes every new picture book from her a real treat...At the heart of this zany intergalactic farmyard tale is a lovely story of home and belonging, and making friends with people that might, at first, look and sound very different from us. This is sure to become a bedtime favourite.
