They also write the darndest things, don't they?

Kids, I tell you. An eternal source of joy. This from a ten year old's essay on a cow, that appears in Plain Words: A Guide to the Use of English, by Sir Ernest Gowers, published by His Majesty's Stationery Office (HMSO), London,in 1948.

I do not know much about the Owl, so I will go on to the beast which I am going to choose. It is the Cow. The Cow is a mammal. It has six sides – right, left, an upper and below. At the back it has a tail on which hangs a brush. With this it sends the flies away so that they do not fall into the milk.

Read the rest of it here.
