Pretend Cows

Published by Graffeg

Maxy is upset when her parents’ farm is left without animals after a health scare, but she keeps their memory alive looking after her own herd of ‘pretend cows’.

With her mother having fallen ill during pregnancy, her father starts to keep chickens and Maxy comes to terms with the challenges of the new birth as she encourages a stubborn hen to lay eggs.

Pretend Cows is one in a series of six illustrated short stories about young people growing up in the countryside.
