The story of Purple Cow was first told by Jude Holmes to her daughter, Wendy in the late 1970's. One night in 1997, while Wendy was working an overnight shift in a dark, scary television studio by herself, she decided to bring Purple Cow to life in a story. Many years later, Jude and Wendy sat down over a hot cup of tea and began drawing. Together they made Sally and Purple Cow come to life for all to enjoy.
Though Wish on a Purple Cow was written over 25 years ago, the story has not been published until now. Children have been hearing the tales of Purple Cow and Dreamland for the past 45 years! Yes, 45! If you are related to Jude and Wendy, or have had the honor of being tucked in and told a bedtime story by these ladies...you know Purple Cow.
This book tells the story of Sally and how her older brother introduces her to the head of Dreamland, Purple Cow. In Dreamland, Sally learns how to order her dreams and rid herself of nightmares and monsters. This book is a magical journey with fun characters and bright beautiful illustrations.
WHAT KIDS SAID ABOUT PURPLE COW
Purple Cow stopped the bad monsters from going into my brain at night.
As a kid, I used to be afraid of all sorts of scary things in the dark. This story really helped me ignore the scary and focus on a restful night's sleep! I used Purple Cow's technique for years!
I like Sally's hair!
