'Joanne Le Maitre has told a lovely story in The Curly Cow. Suitable for country and city kids alike. Utterly, or should that be udderly adorable.' - Alison Lewis, author 'Missing'
'If you can look into a cow's eyes and see diamonds, you will love this book wholeheartedly and read it again and again. I want to come back as a cow. Not just an ordinary cow though, I want to come back as a special cow under the loving care of Joanne Le Maitre.' - John Morrow's 'Pick of the Week'
