Ten Cows to Texas - Peggy Mercer, Bill Crews

Ten Cows to Texas. By Peggy Mercer and illus by Bill Crews. Brooklyn: Handprint Books, 2005. Ages 4-7. http://www.handprintbooks.com
The 10 lovelies (count them) from Lonesome Cow, Georgia are out to win a beauty contest in El Paso. The leader Mimi manages to "acquire" a truck and they're off on a road trip. They dodge deer, get pursued by the police, join a parade, eat in Mississippi, avoid alligators in Louisiana, and highball it across Texas despite the police, bluebonnet distractions, a thunderstorm, and other hurdles. Mimi does get the tiara!
