Misery Moo

By Jeanne Willis
Illustrated by Tony Ross

Tony Ross and Jeanne Willis at their irrepressible best with a heart-warming story about overcoming bad moods.

There was once a cow who was always miserable, and a lamb who tried to cheer her up. But the cow was impossible to cheer up! Even Father Christmas was too jolly for her. The poor lamb burst into tears himself, and wallowed in misery. Finally the cow started to miss him, and gave him the best birthday present ever - a great big grin!

  • A warming tale of good cheer - just right to get in the mood for spring!
  • Life sales for Willis/Ross collaborations are over two million copies, and Tony Ross is the UK's biggest illustrator.
  • Jeanne Willis and Tony Ross won the Smarties Prize for their previous collaboration, Tadpole's Promise.
