The Cow Tripped Over the Moon
A Nursery Rhyme Emergency

author: Jeanne Willis
illustrator: Joel Stewart

Here comes the ambulance! It’s on its way.
Who’s had an accident in Storyland today?

Jumping over the moon is fine as long as you don’t trip—and end up needing cow-size bandages. And having a blackbird peck off your nose can leave a person very sore indeed. Led along by bright, humorous illustrations and an energetic rhyming text, little readers will have fun guessing who the next Storyland victim might be, following hints like, “Who could be covered in egg?” and “Who went up and tumbled down?” Look out, here comes the ambulance!

Who is that bovine that just fell from a great height? What if the wind rocks the cradle a little too hard? Help, it’s a nursery rhyme emergency!
