Moo dreams of becoming a sailor.
Little does she know,
when she sets off toward the sea,
that the first crew she joins
will be composed of cats.
Or that she herself will be hailed
by a shipload of pirate steers
as their captain's dairy queen.
It's "amoozing" where a dream
can take a girl --
a truth which Lisa Wheeler
and Ponder Goembel relish here
in rollicking words
and witty, windblown pictures.
