Few double acts in children’s literature are so loved and enduring as Mamma Moo, a beautiful, friendly, inquisitive cow, and her argumentative, know-all companion Crow. Their deep friendship and vivid personalities have entertained children and adults for over three decades.
Mamma Moo is not your typical cow who only does cow related things, such as grazing and staring endlessly into the distance. Instead, Mamma Moo likes to explore the world, not caring in the slightest if people think she’s unusual. Her constant sense of adventure is a permanent headache to her friend Crow, who thinks cows should only do what cows usually do. But despite his initial annoyance, she always manages to get him to join in on the fun. Together they get up to all sorts of things, such as building treehouses, going bobsleighing, and even cleaning out the barn.
Created by Jujja Wieslander, Mamma Moo and Crow originated as a radio show and first appeared in book form in 1991, illustrated by the highly-acclaimed Sven Nordqvist. Since then, this dynamic duo has been translated into more than thirty languages.
