Sixteen Cows is a very engaging story. It's rhyming texts makes it full of fun and energy. Not only is it a love story that ends happily ever after, but their is also a dilemma right before things end up turning out just fine that keeps you on your toes and curious as to how Cowboy Gene and Cowgirl Sue will figure out whose cows belong to who. Kurt Cyrus' bold and busy artwork captures the story beautifully, and really gives a great image of each event that happens throughout the story.

A humourous tale of a cowboy and a cowgirl, whose neighbourly rivalry turns to romance. Told in rhythmic rhymes, with amusing names for the cows, and funny illustrations by Kurt Cyrus. Fun for preschool to grade 1.
