Clorinda

written by Robert Kinerk, illustrated by Steven Kellogg

Defying the odds, Clorinda the cow follows her dream of becoming a ballet dancer.

Clorinda the cow wants more than anything to be a ballet dancer and is off to New York for her big chance. Things don't work out quite as she hopes but she does learn an important life lesson.

The thing most important is making a try--you can't always triumph. You can't always fly.

From the illustration inside the front cover that shows Clorinda driving Len's truck with the sign "Hey! We Sell Hay" the detailed pictures carry the story.  The characters all have most expressive faces and Clorinda in her tutu and pink ballet slippers is a sight to behold!
