The Cow That Went Oink illustration will appear here.

There was a cow that went oink, who lived on a farm. The other animals on the farm didn't like her because she made an oink sound. All the animals laughed at her. One day she found someone that said moo, but this animal wasn't a cow.

I like this story because it is funny and because it taught me a lesson. The lesson it taught me was that we should not laugh at someone because they are different. My favorite part was when the other animals laughed at the cow and her new friend. They were both really sad. The illustrations are sad because you can see the pig crying after the other animals teased her.

I think children that like sad stories with happy endings should read this book. Even though the other animals make fun of the pig she still ends up happy. If you want to know what makes her happy then you should read this book.
