When Cow hears that she is going away in a truck to never-come-back, her old friend Ratty knows he must help her escape. They are joined by Woolly, the tough fierce lamb who doesnt want to be lamb chops any more than Cow wants to be beef stew.As the three friends set out bravely into the unknown, they meet terrible dangers and kind strangers ¿ and some who are not to be trusted.
Their amazing adventures require Cow and Woolly to show a determination and resourcefulness they have never needed before, while Rattys quick wits see them through.Told in Rattys own inimitable words, this animals-eye-view of life in and beyond the farmyard is a wonderful story of courage and true friendship.
Helen Armstrongs first book ¿ to be followed by a sequel next year ¿ is funny, original, touching and thought-provoking.
With its enchanting line drawings by the popular illustrator Harry Horse, this is an extraordinarily attractive book.
