Book Review: ZIG AND WIKKI IN THE COW


Zig and Wikki, the stars of the Toon Book ZIG AND WIKKI IN SOMETHING ATE MY HOMEWORK return in this sequel, ZIG AND WIKKI IN THE COW. In the previous book, Zig picked up a pet fly from Earth. Now his fly is sick. At first neither Zig nor Wikki know why he’s ill, but then Zig figures out he must be homesick. So, the duo returns to Earth and lands on a farm. All sorts of crazy things happen and along the way Zig and Wikki learn about cows, dung, and ecology. This story is more interesting and entertaining than the first one. It’s also more educational. Zig and Wikki were fairly forgettable characters in their first book, but in this sequel they become more memorable. Children who enjoyed the first Zig and Wikki book will really like this one. Overall, it’s an enjoyable Toon Book that’s almost on par with some of the other Toon Book stories.

My son loved this!

I like all the Toon Books to varying degrees but I think my favourite is still the first, "Jack in the Box".

I don't remember the title off hand, but my favorite was the one where these twins get a magic costume with super powers. They became Mo and Jo or something like that.
