A simple little story that’s funny because of all the visual details, including a turnip Advent Calendar, a bright red monster tongue that’s not what it appears to be, and many accidentally repurposed Christmas presents. Millie the mail cow has only one delivery left to make before Christmas. To her own farm! And of course she knows just where that is. Maybe. It's just over there, right? Right?

Notably, this is one of the only children’s picture books I've read that identifies a woman as a farmer instead of a farmer's wife. Maybe women get to be farmers as long as they’re single, and then they get demoted? Even though I’m pretty sure that on most family farms, everyone who lives there is doing at least some farming…? Anyway.

My 22month old son loves this book! Fun story and fantastic art. We have spent ages exploring all the little details on each page!
