Holy Cow: A Modern-Day Dairy Tale
A rollicking, globe-trotting experience with a twist: a four-legged heroine you will not quickly forget.
Elsie Bovary is a cow, and an exquisite chuffed one at that - her lengthy, lazy days are spent consuming, drowsing, and speaking to her ally, Mallory. One evening, Elsie and Mallory sneak out in their pasture; yet whereas Mallory is drawn to flirting with the neighboring bulls, Elsie reveals herself attracted to the farmhouse. during the window, she sees the farmer's relations accrued round a brilliant field God - and what the field God finds approximately whatever referred to as an "industrial meat farm" shakes Elsie's knowing of her global to its middle.
There's just one resolution: break out to a greater, more secure international. And so a motley staff is shaped: Elsie; Jerry - excuse me, Shalom - a cranky, Torah-reading pig who is lately switched over to Judaism; and Tom, a artful (in his personal brain, no less than) turkey who cannot fly, yet who can paintings an iPhone together with his beak. Toting stolen passports and slapdash human disguises, they head for the airport.
Elsie is our wise-cracking, pop-culture-reference-dropping, slyly witty narrator; Tom - who does finally discover ways to fly (sort of) - dispenses psychiatric suggestion in a faux German accessory; and Shalom, rejected via his followed humans in Jerusalem, finally ends up abruptly uniting Israelis and Palestinians. David Duchovny's charismatic creatures element the best way towards a mutual realizing and attractiveness that the area desperately needs.
Had realized a few rudimentary healing insights. Which made him very tense.

There could be a wink from time to time. That’s ok. So a few of my readers understand what’s purported to occur once we wake up there with the bulls, you recognize, cue the funky bass line and the undesirable appearing. That’s one other factor: people are so bizarre in regards to the intercourse. It’s like pooping, parents, every person.
Can’t fiddle. simply attempting to get sure issues out of ways. Let’s see, oh yeah, how am I scripting this, you could ask yourself, while i've got no palms? Can’t carry a pen. think me, I’ve attempted. now not lovely. now not that there are lots of pens round anymore, what with the entire desktops. or even although we will be able to imagine and think and be humorous, we can't communicate. at the least to people. we've got what you humans used to name an “oral tradition.” tales and knowledge are passed down from mom cow to daughter calf, from.
