When Reena's family moves from the hustle and bustle of the city to rural Maine, her life is completely upturned.  Soon after arriving, Reena's parents volunteer her and her 7-year-old brother, Luke, to help an older lady named Mrs. Falala.  This lady is strange, rude, and a little scary.  Plus, there are all kinds of animals running around her yard.

Reena and Luke soon discover they will mostly be taking care of a stubborn cow named Zora.  Neither one of the city kids knows anything about working on a farm, let alone tending to a hulking mass of cow!

This is not my favorite Sharon Creech book, but it is a cute and fun read.  It is definitely worth your time especially considering how short it is; it is a mix of verse and prose.
