’One balmy day down under in a paddock by a stream,
A herd of cows was eating grass and making milk and cream.
When one of them – a Jersey cow called Jenny Bramble Rose,
Began to twitch because she sniffed a cricket up her nose.

At last the true story of how cricket was invented!
Not in England or even in India, but right here in Australia ! It was on one fateful day when dairy cow Daisy May got a cricket up her nose and sneezed. Her friend Floppy May grabbed a stick from a nearby willow tree and whacked the flying cricket over the fence with a pleasant-sounding click.

Told in rollicking verse and with zany illustrations, this book will bowl you over!
