Reviews for Zig and Wikki in The Cow
"Spiegelman again strikes an effective balance between hijinks and education, giving the aliens straightforward but distinct personalities that play well off each other and incorporating an array of ecological facts in a way that flows with the narrative rather than intrudes upon it. Loeffler’s art captures animals with a simple realism and aliens with gentle humor, and gives the whole enterprise a breezy zing. The reading level, while on the higher end of the TOON Books spectrum, will not interfere with the fun."
"Because this book is aimed at early readers, the story is simplified, but the vocabulary is designed to stretch their minds."
"Combining humor with some fascinating--and appealingly gross--information about cow digestion, dung beetles and microorganisms, Zig and Wikki in The Cow will attract a wide variety of young readers."
"When we saw the question 'Can cow poop help two friends patch up their friendship?' on the back of this book, we knew the second- and third-graders it’s aimed at would be lured in."
--The New York Post
"It’s a big science lesson on life cycles, food webs, and the ecosystems around us. But Spiegelman and Loeffler deliver it in such a cute, fun little package that it all works so very well."
