Nadine is as content as a cow can be. Her life on Pete's farm is perfect. She loves to wander off on her own to smell the breezes, visit favorite spots, and search for stones for her collection. The other cows snicker at her solitary ways, so when Nadine finds an egg and naively assumes it's a stone, no one bothers to enlighten her. Instead, the other cows urge her to take great care of it.

One day the whole herd is sold to another farm and Nadine's perfect life is shattered. No Pete, no beloved farm and worst of all, no stone to care for. Unless Pete rescues her and takes her home, Nadine will never know of the miracle taking place to her precious stone.

In Queen Nadine, Maryann Kovalski blends the unique voice and warm-and-bouncy artwork that has made her a favorite across the country. She has illustrated over twenty titles, six of which she also wrote. Her touching Brenda and Edward has become a Canadian classic and her illustrations for The Big Storm by Rhea Tregebov earned her a Governer General's Award nomination.

"There is much to enjoy in this gentle story...Kovalski's skill as an illustrator is evident as she imparts mood through a judicious use of colour and design...Highly recommended." - CM Magazine
