Luella the Cow provides sweet milk that can be made into cheese. Luella needs grass or hay to eat, water, and sunshine like all cows. Unlike other cows, she also requires a song and kiss. Would you kiss her? Annalisa doesn't want to!

Beautiful pictures match the sweetness of this story.

It's time for the annual Corn Maze Festival and Farmer Brown wants to create a special Statue of Liberty corn maze. He has to bribe the cows, chickens, and Duck to help him. Duck helps him during the daytime but at night he makes his own special surprise! The best way to see the corn maze is from up in the air. Would you like to ride in a hot air balloon like Duck and Farmer Brown? (available in Spanish, too) I really enjoyed reading about Duck's adventures.
