PreS-Gr 2–The latest installment of the “Interrupting Cow” series takes place back at the farm, where readers meet a strange animal who is horse-shaped and has black stripes on white. Turns out Zebra, who is quite funny and knows lots of jokes, is the new addition. As Interrupting Cow and Zebra walk through the farm, other cows, horses, ducks, and goats watch them. Interrupting Cow is the perfect guide for Zebra; they bond over jokes and interruptions. This tale of friendship and humor is accompanied by colorful illustrations, which allow readers to easily identify the animals. The main characters wear shoes and walk upright, allowing them to stand out from the other animals in the story. Subject specific vocabulary like “neighing,” “hooves,” and “scribble of foam” may need to be introduced. Additionally, some words like “recovered,” “ringmaster,” and “astonished” could be unfamiliar to readers.
VERDICT A fun addition to this ongoing series.
