Calling all cowgirls and cowboys

Ok Mooovers and (milk)shakers, check out these udderly amazing images from the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators.

'Books Mooove Me', the SCBWI cow, is to remind us of the power and magic of children's books and young imaginations.
It is part of the International Cow Parade to be held in the Margaret River region between March and June 2010.

Frane' Lessac led a talented bunch of SCBWI illustrators including Matt Ottley, Wendy Binks, James Foley, Karen Blair, Shannon Melville, Briony Stewart and Samantha Hughes.
Fremantle Press author Dianne Wolfer said the project began when she saw the callout for expressions of interest.
"I showed it to Frane' and said – please tell me not to even think about this," said Wolfer.
Fortunately, for the cow, Frane was all for it.
The launch will take place on ... at ... after which the cow will be put out to pasture in Augusta for a short stint before being auctioned off later this year.
