This is the story about a bovine with a can-do attitude. Cows Ralph and Morris wish to seek relief from a scorcher. When Ralph suggests they go swimming, Morris counters that they don’t know how. Determined to learn, Ralph seeks swimming advice from different animals and acquires various kinds of swim gear. Rogé’s artwork, particularly the image of Ralph decked out in his aquatic getup, truly captures the story’s wacky premise. mRb
