Exclusive Interview with the Author of Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type
“One of the most incredible things about Click, Clack, Moo is the fact that almost 25 years later, I’m still talking about it and we’re still reading it.…It’s still part of people’s childhood libraries.”
Doreen Cronin was very shy as a child and always preferred reading to speaking. It was a special teacher who gave her the confidence to not only find her voice but to also see herself as a writer.
