When Bluebell Sang  written and illustrated by Lisa Campbell Ernst, originally published by Bradbury Press
Here's a local favorite, by Kansas City children's author, Lisa Campbell Ernst. In fact, the main character in this story, Bluebell the cow, is so loved that she is the mascot featured in the Children's Area of Kansas City's Central Branch Library, where fans come to climb on her back, pet her nose, or read her a story. In this book, Bluebell's talent for singing brings her stardom but she soon longs to be back at the farm—if she can get away from her greedy manager. Sit a spell and listen to this mo-o-o-ving tale!
