"With a silly, well-written story and clever illustrations, this is one of my kids' all-time favorite stories. We've enjoyed No Moon, No Milk for about 14 years, and my nine-year-old still reads it whenever she wants a giggle. My highest praise? You can give this book as a gift, without ever having laid eyes on it, and be sure you've given a great book." said.

"I heard of this book from a friend, he had found it in a Library and said his children loved it. A friend's son had a birthday and I purchased it for a gift and received a big thank you from this boy.

Not only did these young people like this book, but before I sent it to the birthday boy I read it. I enjoyed very much and have recommended it to others for their children. It is a great book for beginning readers.

"Martha is sad. Martha is disgruntled. Martha refuses to give milk...."her udder was dry and her eyes were wet." Martha is not a happy milk cow. Rob the farmer and apparently Martha's best friend questions the rather stubborn bovine and finds that she is bored and wants to do more "than cow around in a pasture all my life." It seems that Martha's grandmother was the fabled cow that jumped over the moon and Martha, in her turn, also wants to go to the moon! "No Moon, No Milk," she informs Rob.

And so the journey and adventure begins.

Poor Rob tries every thing from surfing at Venice Beach in Southern California, visiting Crater Lake National Park in Oregon, visiting Radio City Music Hall in New York to see the "Rockets," (Get it...Rockets...like as in moon rockets).

Will Rob ever make Martha be happy? Perhaps a trip to the American Museum of Natural History will work..."A science moooseum" where they have a mock-up of the lunar surface. We shall see.

This is a delightfully funny book which is full of cow word play. Martha is a rather loveable cow who know what she want (anyway, she thinks she does) and a very dedicated farmer friend.

The artwork is quite well done and ranges from cute to truly funny. It blends quite well with the text so you not only get a verbal joke and story, but also a visual one.

This is an ideal work for a group read. I have yet to find a kid that did not enjoy it. As a matter of fact, I have yet to find an adult that did not enjoy it as much as the kids!

"A farmer's work is never done. But this one goes above and beyond to make his milk cow happy. There are many messages in this book that make it funny and a great read for all!" said.

"I bought this book to read to my 2 year old and it just did not work for him. The story is about a cow that has bigger dreams that she wants her owner to help her acomplish. It was hard for my son to relate to the book so he lost intrest - not that he does not have dreams it was more the types of dreams the cow had (ie going to outer space) - he was not yet familiar enough with outerspace to get into it. The book was also quite wordy.

It will be on our shelf till he is ready for it. Good book but maybe for an older kid.

"This was an excellent book. My students really liked it. Martha wouldn't give Rob the farmer any milk until she walked on the moon. Rob took her to a museum to walk on a replica of the moon. Martha realized that there wasn't any grass on the moon and she wanted to go back to the farm. This book helps us to realize that the grass isn't always greener on the other side." said.

"Cute book attributing personality to a cow. A little far-fetched but obviously intended for humor. I liked it because the child separates reality from pure fun" said.

"Very good story about a cow who must go to the moon. Then she has adventures and dercides te moon is not for her." said.
