Clancy the Courageous Cow by Lachie Hume
“Clancy was born on a stormy winter’s day, a day of great disappointment for his parents. You see, they belong to a herd of Belted Galloways, but Clancy had no belt. He was totally black.” Clancy the cow stands out in his herd. He is picked on because he looks different, leading to feelings of intolerance and prejudice. Clancy wins against the enemy cows. Now his own herd finally appreciate Clancy for who he is and not what he looks like.
