“Caw! How did you get up in the tree, Mamma Moo?”
“I climbed, Crow! But you know, it’s a good thing you came along, because there’s one thing Junior forgot to tell me.”
“What’s that?”
“How to get down. Moo!”

Jujja’s comments about the book

This book was first published in 2005. At the time there was only one chapter book about Mamma Moo and Crow, but there were a number of picture books. I wanted there to be more books for those children who are happy to listen to a story or who can read themselves. I’m a big fan of reading aloud. Sitting with a child in your lap listening is a godsend. I’m pleased that I’ve had the chance to record all of my books and that they are now easily available in digital format. For a child to have someone they trust read aloud especially for them is a completely different and valuable experience.
