Synopsis

Once upon a time only horses jumped over the moon—until one day when a curious cow stops grazing, starts gazing, and then decides to try this incredible jump herself!

The horses laugh at first; after all, cows aren’t meant to vault. But when this moonstruck cow refuses to give up, they end their neigh-saying and start to wonder if a high-hurdling cow might be the first of her species to achieve her lofty goal. This illuminating spin on the favorite Mother Goose nursery rhyme is both a fanciful bedtime read-aloud and an inspirational story about the hard work and determination of a spirited cow with her eyes on the stars.
