BCB Cow Boy Is Not A Cowboy


In debut author-illustrator Gregory Barrington’s hysterical picture book, a laid-back bull named Merle (who is a boy cow and NOT a cowboy) forms a zany friendship with an outgoing goat who can’t stop herself from saying "HOWDY" whenever she sees him.

Not much happens on Humdrum Farm and that is not okay with the adventurous Goat Girl. She’s looking for excitement! Goat Girl thinks she may have found it when she encounters a bull named Merle, who she is sure is a brave cowboy since he is in fact a boy and a cow.


He tries to set things straight . . .


. . . only to have her prove he’s been wrong all along—maybe he is a brave cowboy after all.
