So, when a local farmer calls to tell me his dairy cows are disappearing and he thinks it’s the work of a rogue artifact…sigh…it appears I’m about to get a crash course in becoming a farm girl.

These cows haven’t just meandered away chewing their cuds. They’ve actually disappeared.


As in here one minute, gone the next. Which means it’s up to me to don tall rubber boots and traverse the cow bumps…slog through the cow patties…and reach into the abyss to try to drag them back.

I’m not sure how the frog and the cat are going to help with this one. I really didn’t want to bring them along at all. But you know how insistent they can be…

Wait…where’s the frog? Has anybody seen my cat?

Slimy! Wicked! Where on earth have you gotten off to?

Poof?  (Amazon)
