Children’s Books Both Funny and Smart

Oraculous Tales, the new Moo-Cow Fan Club chapter book series, uses a similar approach as the award-winning Moo-Cow Fan Club magazine to envelope the reader in history, philosophy, arts and other cultures through a fictional adventure story. When Rhetorical the Oracle tells the Moo-Cow Fan Club gang a story they find themselves transported to the time and place of that tale. In each book, information and insight about the time period and the culture is conveyed through the adventure story itself. Along with this, more in-depth information is offered in non-fiction sidebars that will give the reader a better understanding of the history and people the MCFC gang encounter.
