A brilliantly funny and wildly quirky series from the creator of Astrosaurs. Professor McMoo is a very clever cow - so clever, in fact, that he has managed to build himself a time machine from discarded farming machinery. He and his two cow friends, Pat and Bo Vine live on the Barmer farm, in fear of the hideous farmer's wife, Betty. But they are also star agents of the CIA - Cows in Action, a crack team of cow commandos! In the future, cows live peacefully with humans as equals, not as food. But some cows in the future try to use the technology of time travel to interfere with history - and the Prof has to help stop that! A wonderful seasonal tale featuring our intrepid heroes! Prof McMoo and his fellow CIA members are accidentally dropped into Christmas Eve 1066, the eve of William the Conqueror's coronation as King. And the whole of the land has gone Christmas crazy! There are lights and tinsel everywhere - surely that can't be right? An evil ter-moo-nator plot comes to light - they are determined to stop the coronation, ruin Christmas and let their evil robo-turkeys take over the town! Can McMoo stop them before it's too late?

Author Biography - Steve Cole
Born in 1971, Steve Cole spent a happy childhood in rural Bedfordshire being loud and aspiring to amuse. He liked books, and so went to the University of East Anglia to read more of them. Later on he started writing them too, with titles ranging from pre-school poetry to Young Adult thrillers (with more TV and film tie-ins than he cares to admit to along the way). In other careers he has been the editor of Noddy magazine, the voice of a Dalek and an editor of fiction and nonfiction book titles for various publishers. He is the author of the fantastically successful Astrosaurs series for young readers.
