The Day the Cow Sneezed

I'm never leaving, right?... thanks to one awesome reader and illustrator, I was clued in to the impending reprint of Jim Flora's classic The Day the Cow Sneezed by the incredible-and-why-haven't-I-heard-of-them-before-I'm-such-a-loser Enchanted Lion Books. Awesome awesome awesome read. I'm so glad someone is bringing it to a new generation of children... and just in time for the holidays. I'm simply giddy with anticipation!

PS: Please don't tell every kid we know what they are getting for Christmas.
PSS: I'm sure Ward is giddy, too!
PSSS: Don't forget to enter the Great Monday Give for a reprint copy of Flora's The Fabulous Firework Family.
PSSSS: OK, I'm really leaving now.

Wow, great! Thanks so much for posting this, we need to let as many people know about this reprint as we can! If this one goes well I think there is talk of reprinting some of his other classics too! :)

I also stumbled upon this news recently and am excited about it. The copies of this book on the used market are so high I am looking forward to getting an affordable copy. Can't wait till the Fall!

I noticed it says "Our FIRST (!!!!)James Flora title will be the visually stunning."

So... MORE TO COME (possibly)! YAY!

Oh dear, I thought I told you all about this! I found out via the Flora Blog back in January. It's VERY exciting! Can NOT wait!

These look adorable. I'm enjoying that our lil guy is enjoying Prince Bertram the Bad (he's even letting Mommy read it to him, and usually it's only Daddy that gets to read to him at night). Can't wait to add to his vintage collection.
