CALLIE POLLY-OLI COW cover image
Callie Cow, referred to as a 'dame', is lively. She is looking for a suitor and has particular tastes. Why she wants one is never made clear except she does. As a character she is strong and visual as is Captain Clam who wins her heart. A weakness is in the lack of character description such as with Captain Clam who becomes enamored of Cally Polly from a newspaper photograph. His physical appearance is not provided. The combination of narrator, character interaction with the audience, overuse of alliteration is confusing and weakens the slender storyline. We give this screenplay 3.5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 5 to 8. By Juror #11, KIDS FIRST!

This book is the first of a series for this author. These books referred to as ALPHABET SOUP ANIMAL SERIES are a compilation of tongue-twister stories about animals. The stories over dramatize the use of words that begin with one particular alphabet letter. Callie-Polly-Oli Cow is an example. The letter 'C' is dominant. The result is a unique tale about a cow. Look for more stories to follow! Then, add books to your collection. The final result will be your child's first set of encyclopedias with bright, dynamic and colorful pictures. Your child will be introduced to an advanced vocabulary; and as a toddler or elementary student; have great fun reading as a result of the tongue twisters!
You too can become a film critic!
