"Misery Moo of the title is a miserable old cow. She moans her way through life. despite the best efforts of her little friend, a lamb. Finally, the lamb decides never to see the cow again because he cannot bear to see his friend being so upset and sad. the cow goes in search of and finds a very unhappy lamb. Lamb explains that he cannot be happy while his friend is unhappy and is rewarded with 'the biggest, sunniest smile in the whole, wide, wonderful world'. And indeed it is.

This heartwarming story explores, with sensitivity and insight, what it means to have a friend. Tony Ross is able to crystallise emotions through his evocative use of line. He has helped to produce a book of much visual charm, a story that has both humour and tenderness. Highly recommended."
