Emily and Daisy, Emily is a helpful little girl, so when her mummy is worried that Daisy the cow will escape into the clover field through a hole in the fence, she offers to go and look after Daisy for the day. On the way, she meets a big dog, a boastful boy and an old man with a sack. But when she gets to the meadow, she realises she needs help with Daisy, and to mend the fence. Who can she turn to?
This is a delightful springtime picture book from Elsa Beskow. Young children will enjoy following Emily through her day as unexpectedly good things keep coming her way.
