Little Joe : Knowing that the newest calf at Windswept Farms is his makes Eli Stegner's heart beat faster than a butterfly's wings. He dreams about winning the blue ribbon at the County Fair, just like Pa and Grandpa did. First thing he's got to do, though, is befriend Little Joe. The calf's so skittish only Spider the barn cat can get near him. But Little Joe likes it when Eli hums polka tunes, and with Grandpa training them for the fair, Eli and Little Joe become the perfect team and the best of friends. But as summer turns into fall, Eli isn't so sure he wants Little Joe to fatten up because all cattle get sold after the competition. . . .
