It was so charming, just like a fairy tale. I knew immediately that I wanted it to be my next book. As the manuscript came to life, I created each character with traits and symbolic references that would be fun for the reader: Wendell’s name came from the Vanderwende family name. Queenie’s personality as the bossy Holstein, reflects her role as the “queen bee” of the herd. Lovey is the sweet Jersey cow with a heart on her forehead. Daisy, the ditzy holstein, is fashioned after my dog that looks like a cow. Shamrock, the red holstein, reflects Irish traits with a shamrock on her chest. While every cow is different, I used these symbols to identify each one because Farmer Jimmy told me that they all have unique personalities. Everyone seems to share my fondness for the Vanderwendes and their ice cream. Stacie is the colorful, whimsical artist of Daisy DeZigns Art Studio in Salisbury, Maryland.
