Wilhelmina Goes Wandering (Hardcover)
Wilhelmina Goes Wandering is based on the true story of a runaway cow in Connecticut. For five months in 2011, the 800-pound black Angus was seen around Milford, Orange, and New Haven, hanging out and traveling with a herd of deer. When she is eventually captured and relocated to an animal sanctuary in Oxford, Wilhelmina finds that her urge for adventures has been tamed by knowing she is finally accepted and loved by her new farmer friend Betty. Along the way, our heroine learns to accept herself as the free spirit she really is. Five- to nine-year-old readers (grownups, too ) will fall in love with Wilhelmina and her animal and human friends, brought to colorful life in Katie Runde's lovingly rendered watercolor illustrations.
