Moo and Me is a non-fiction children’s story and activity book telling the story of a rescued dairy bull’s extraordinary life, and the unique bond and connection formed between human and animal. Marina Evans living in the Western Cape in South Africa, is the moo mom who, through their adventures together and while caring for MooMoo, represented a mother figure in the life of this animal; a special soul. This true story is told from Marina’s perspective and emphasises the real-life experiences showing sentience, the ability of animals to think and feel… and mostly their need to form strong friendships.
The story ends with a fun filled board game, Moo and Marina’s friendship game- suitable for the whole family.
