Product description

Life for the cows on the Barmer farm is simply hideous. As if the farmer wasn’t bad enough, there’s his awful wife as well. Luckily, Professor McMoo is such a clever cow that he has built a time machine to transport himself and his two cow friends away from the farm. But just as they’re about to make their escape – disaster! A terrible THING – a ter-moo-nator, a robotic cow from the future – appears out of nowhere and attacks them!

Just as the brave trio see off their attacker, yet more strange cows arrive, dressed all in black. They are agents of the CIA – Cows in Action – a team of cow commandos from the future. They need Professor McMoo’s time-travelling help to put right mistakes in history! And before they know it, our heroes are back in the time of Henry VIII, where Henry’s wife, Anne of Cleves, has been replaced by a cow in disguise! It’s all part of a terrible ter-moo-nator plot to change history. But can our brave beefy heroes help without being ter-moo-nated themselves? First in a terrific time-travelling series full of moos and muddles.
