Chicken, Pig, Cow and the Purple Problem by Ruth Ohi

In the third Chicken, Pig, and Cow adventure, we find out why Cow has purple spots - that's the only color of clay Girl had. But Cow isn't happy with his color, he wants to be a proper cow color. So he sets off on an exciting adventure to change his color. In the end, he decides his original color is best and he is reunited with his old friends and makes a new friend.

This is a simple but attractive little story, suitable for toddlers and preschoolers. The illustrations are light and pleasant and there is gentle humor throughout the story.

Verdict: Not essential, but if you have the budget this is a pleasant series to add to your picturebook section. Children will enjoy the toys' little adventures and you might want to have playdough available for them to make their own creatures.
