On Order



The Corn County Theatre is holding auditions for its big show, and Daisy is suddenly stage-struck. The director, however, won't allow a cow on stage. That's when one of the dancers suggests that Daisy could work behind the scenes. Daisy takes to her new job with boundless enthusiasm. Then comes opening night and one of the dancers is taken ill. Will the show go on? It's all up to Daisy. Viki Woodworth's delightful story of an adorable cow with big dreams is a fun-filled follow-up to Daisy the Firecow.

Publisher's Weekly Review

The star of Daisy the Firecow returns in Daisy the Dancing Cow by Viki Woodworth. Daisy wants to try out for the local theater's dance auditions (a sign reads "Hoofers needed"). Even though she can stomp, hop and step with the best of 'em, the director does not want to cast a cow-until one of the dancers is injured on opening night, and Daisy saves the show!

School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 3-This follow-up to Daisy the Firecow (Boyds Mills, 2001) chronicles the likable bovine's foray into the world of entertainment. When Daisy reads an advertisement, "Hoofers Needed for Musical Show Auditions Today," she looks down at her four hooves and figures she is more than qualified for the job. Unfortunately, the director refuses to allow a heifer to perform in the show. Undeterred, Daisy signs on as a "gofer." A kind performer helps her learn the ropes, and she picks up all sorts of show-business skills, including how to dance. When disaster in the form of a turned ankle threatens the opening, Daisy steps in and saves the day. The full-page cartoons depict a very quirky-looking cow with a rotund body, four yellow feet, and a corkscrew tail. Companions from the previous story, a bee, a worm, and a bird, accompany her throughout the book. Children will enjoy following the antics of this lively character.-Sheilah Kosco, Rapides Parish Library, Alexandria, LA (c) Copyright 2010.
