Frankie the cow was grumpy and her problem was that she did not like the view. That was all that she talked about and she had no time for her friends. One summer morning a hedgehog was passing through the fields and saw Frankie standing there all alone. Though the hedgehog liked the view, Frankie complained that she did not like it. She showed the hedgehog the lazy pigs. Frankie thought they were mucky and wanted them to be clean like she was. She also thought the church spire was too tall and there were sheep everywhere. She felt dizzy just looking at the spire and she felt she was always being watched. The hedgehog decided to help Frankie and he asked Frankie to just turn around. Would that help Frankie and make her happy?

The Cow Who Didn't Like the View by Eszter Molnar is a charming story that will make readers understand the importance of having a different perspective to escape from monotony. Anita Bagdi's splendid and colorful illustrations make the concept palpable to readers and breathe life into the story and characters. Frankie and the hedgehog have been portrayed strongly, making their personalities and individuality real and relatable. Books with a concept are good for readers to teach them life lessons. The Cow Who Didn't Like the View by Eszter Molnar is a good book for tutors and parents to use for storytelling sessions and read-aloud sessions in schools and at home to make children realize how a different perspective can break their monotony and make them happy.
