"A determined cow thinks outside the box to prove that she can jump over the moon in this bouncy barnyard rhyme . . . Underneath its silliness, Mortensen's energetic verse offers readers a can-do message about finding different ways of looking at a challenge."—Publishers Weekly

"[This book] . . . stands out for its clever heroine who just won't give up."—Kirkus Reviews

"As fresh as newly churned butter, this takeoff on "Hey Diddle Diddle" is mighty clever. . . Mo(ooo)ve aside your other cow tales, because this lovable bovine really does take off."—Booklist

"But Cindy Moo ignored her friends.
She'd made a solemn vow.
She'd jump across the silver moon—
as soon as she knew how."
