Sent to the store yet again, Myron meets a mysterious curly-haired girl who sells him a cow--a magic cow, no less, that supplies not only the milk his mother needs but also three wishes. Packed with classic fairy-tale references, this story is made even more outlandish by the modern urban setting evoked in Jago's subdued illustrations. Category: Picture Books. 2005, Barefoot, 40pp, 16.99. Ages 4 to 9. Rating: 3: Recommended, satisfactory in style, content, and/or illustration.
