Excerpt

I love this day,
the grass at my knees,
the buzz of the bees,
the fluzz of the flies,
switching my tail
and making pies.

It is so, so fine
to be bovine
to be a cow
right here
right now.

Night Cars

by Teddy Jam
illustrated by Eric Beddows
edition:Paperback
also available: Hardcover

Winner of the Elizabeth Mrazik-Cleaver Award

It is late at night in the city. From his father's shoulder, a sleepless baby watches the snow drift down from the sky onto the busy street below. What are all those noises?
