Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
Elsie Bovary is a cow, and a pretty happy one at that; her long, lazy days are spent eating, napping, and chatting with her best friend, Mallory. One night, Elsie and Mallory sneak out of their pasture ... and Elsie finds herself drawn to the farmhouse. Through the window, she sees the farmer's family gathered around a bright Box God and what the Box God reveals about something called an 'industrial meat farm' shakes Elsie's understanding of her world to its core. There's only one solution: escape to a better, safer world. And so a motley crew is formed: Elsie; Jerry, excuse me, Shalom, a cranky, Torah-reading pig who's recently converted to Judaism; and Tom, a suave (in his own mind, at least) turkey who can't fly, but who can work an iPhone with his beak.
