One night on the farm, the cows overhear a fantastic tale.

Hey Diddle Diddle, the cat and the fiddle, the cow jumped over the moon!

Inspired by this classic rhyme, a plucky cow named Cindy Moo sets out to prove that cows really can leap over the moon.

The other cows laugh at her, but that doesnt stop Cindy from tryingand failingnight after night . . . until a trick of nature shows Cindy a way to triumph.

As delightfully silly as the original nursery rhyme, this hilarious picture book will have readers of all stripes (and spots) cheering for its determined heroine.
