|Sailor Moo: Cow at Sea|
Written by Lisa Wheeler,
Illustrated by Ponder Goembel
A Richard Jackson Book
“Goembel’s dusky acrylics introduce a cast of bipedal critters who teeter wildly between anthropomorphism and realism, upping the humor considerably. The goggle-sporting manatees and hook-handed cat captain Silver Claw will likely have readers giggling.”

“When I first read the manuscript I knew this book was for me.
It had rhymes,cow-puns, romance and a happy ending.
I was charmed by Moo and knew I could show
her character in my illustrations.”
— Ponder Goembel
