Dirty Beasts - Kathy Ryan

The Cow



My piece 'The Cow' comes from a book published in 1983.  Called Dirty Beasts the book is a collection of rhymes written  by Roald Dahl and illustrated by Quentin Blake

The story of this particular rhyme is that a beloved cow called Daisy sprouts wings and flies.  People are amazed and come from all over to see the sight of a flying cow but one particularly nasty man insults and laughs at her and as payback Daisy drops a cowpat in his head 

I choose  'The Cow' to recreate in Sugar as it's a funny, busy poem and features both animals, people and a backround of fields. 
Because Roald Dahl is best known for his characters who have featured in the many movies made over the years, I think it's nice to bring his funny, clever rhymes to everybody's attention
