A cow dressed with snaps? How completely absurd! I looked up at Mama, then without a word, I dropped Suzy Cow, and I went out to play. No cows without buttons would join ME today!
No Buttons for Suzy Cow is an almost true story, written in rhythm and rhyme, about a girl whose mother made a doll for her (Suzy Cow) and her quest to find the perfect buttons for Suzy Cow's dress. When mother gives up on the search, the child works out her own satisfaction.
