Dadblamed Union Army Cow

author: Susan Fletcher
illustrator: Kimberly Bulcken Root

“That dadblamed cow!” She follows her owner into the Union army and then straight on south to fight in the war. She needs unstomped grass to eat, she gets stuck in the mud, and she’s just plain dangerous in battle. But this peculiar cow also gives the weary soldiers some surprising comforts. Based on stories and newspaper reports from the Civil War and full of lively illustrations, this is a heartwarming tale of one wonderfully dadblamed persistent cow.

“Most picture-book war stories are long on history but short on humor until now. . . . Root’s droll style perfectly portrays the story with homespun flavor.” — Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
