Item description for Something to Tell the Grandcows by Eileen Spinelli & Bill Slavin...

Hoping to have an adventure to impress her grandcows, Emmadine Cow joins Admiral Richard E. Byrd on his 1933 expedition to the South Pole.

Publishers Description
Emmadine Cow leads a normal life on Farmer Fergus's farm. But while swatting horseflies and chasing crows out of the corn are all well and good, what Emmadine really longs for is an "adventure," something she could tell her grandcows about. And so when she learns that Admiral Richard E. Byrd was looking for a few good cows to take with him to the South Pole, she volunteers.

Loosely based on an actual historical event, Eileen Spinelli's humorous tale of Emmadine's adventures will delight young readers everywhere, while Bill Slavin's bold illustrations bring this very unique cow to life.
