This delightful sequel reintroduces us to Peter (aka Moody Cow) and his mischievous friend Bully. Along the way we meet a snake named Jaws who goes on to appear in Peter's terrifying dreams, and watch as Bully revels in the deaths of the crickets he feeds to the snakes. Peter is uncomfortable with the plight of the little creatures, and Bully nicknames Peter "Coward Cow" because he regards him as a wimp. Once again, Grandfather, the beloved old steer from Moody Cow Meditates (#BKK323), brings serenity and long-horned wisdom to the situation as he gently teaches the boys to compassionately identify with other beings. The story ends with everyone sharing a laugh — even Jaws and the crickets!
This book includes two activities — compassionate cricket release and compassionate worm rescue — for parents and children to do together. Ages 4-9. Hardcover, 32 pages.
