This is a clever and witty story about a little cow who's not afraid to be a little different and explore the wide world around her, regardless of how impossible and ridiculous her sisters think her antics are. The illustrations are beautiful and unique and full of delightful little details (like a flying pig!) that add a little something extra. Her siblings eventually join her adventure (despite their initial feelings) and finishing this book I felt all sorts of warm fuzzies: endless possibilities, fulfilled dreams and siblings supporting each other.

First off, I love the illustrations in this book. It's so beautiful and adds so much to the story. I love that Tina didn't worry about what her sisters thought, she just kept doing what interested her. When her siblings finally venture out to find her and see that Tina was telling the truth, they end up trying some new things and end up having wonderful experiences together by having the attitude of saying yes!

This book is charming! The delightful watercolor illustrations are matched with a delightful little story, told simply and concisely. It's a little bit silly and a little bit sweet and perfect for reading out loud over and over again.
