When Cows Fly
A fun story written in a rhyming, limerick style, “When Cows Fly” is aimed at the younger set. Illustrated with finely cut paper illustrations, the story revolves around a boy in the woods, his pet cows and a massive pile of garbage that is accumulating nearby. Jacob takes matters into his own hands. He attaches wings to his cows and they go to work. What happens next is both funny and (a little bit … ) gross. You can probably guess.

Garbage! Monster! Burp!
A monster at the bottom of a hill eats all of the garbage generated by the town on top of the hill. This provides two important benefits: The monster is happy with plenty to eat and the town stays nice and clean. Unfortunately, as the town grows, so does the amount of garbage the monster must consume. He gets bigger – and he starts burping. This is, as you can probably guess, a bit unsightly and stinky. In the end, the kids figure out how to solve the problem – despite the nasty mayor’s doubts and objections.
