Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Farmer Brown has a problem.

His cows like to type.

All day long he hears "Click, clack, MOO.
Click, clack, MOO.
Clickety, clack, MOO.

But Farmer Brown's problems REALLY begin when his cows start leaving him notes....

First they demand better working conditions, then they stage a strike.

Doreen Cronin's understated text and Betsy Lewin's expressive illustrations make the most of this hilarious situation. Come join the fun as a bunch of literate cows turn Farmer Brown's farm upside down.

Synopsis:

A high-stakes adventure and hilarious ode to self-esteem for fans of Oliver Jeffers, Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type, and Louise, The Adventures of a Chicken.

Nadine can talk a blue streak, and one day she tells a real whopper: she isn't afraid of anything--no siree! Then her friends call her bluff, and Nadine must enter. . .The Deep. Dark. Woods. Only the woods aren't so scary after all, until the sun sets, that is, and Nadine can't find her friends. What is this boastful bovine to do? Run around in blind terror? Plummet off a cliff? Crash into a stream? Check, check, and check. But is all lost? Doubtful. After all, she is cow, hear her MOOOOOOOOO!

Synopsis:

Hilarious and heartwarming read-aloud from IRA Childrens Book Award winner

 

Cuckoo hatches. And all is well. But when his brothers and sisters sing out Too-too-weet! Too-too-weet! Cuckoo instead chirps Cuckoo! and no one can understand him.

When he leaves his nest, Cuckoo still cant find anyone who speaks his language. He tries to communicate with the other animals—coomooing and buckooing and cabooing along the way—but he doesnt sound like anyone else out there! Just when he thinks all is lost, Cuckoo finds an unlikely friend who understands him perfectly.

IRA Childrens Book Award winner Fiona Roberton has created an utterly charming read-aloud about a little bird that will win fans over with his hilarious attempts at communication and determination to go to any length to find a friend.

A wonderfully unique story of revolution and compromise. Cronin and Lewin tell a wonderful tale with conflict, resolution, and a superb ending, all which too often are separated from the Board Book genre.

Farmer Brown discovers that his cows know how to type when he receives a message from them about their need for electric blankets. When he refuses to give them blankets the cows in turn refuse to give Farmer Brown any milk for the day. As the story moves on the cows continue to ask for items for not only themselves but also their friends, the hens. Overall this is a great book for young readers because it is humorous and will make children laugh out loud. The illustrations in the boom are also worth looking at because they focus on many different facial expressions to show what the characters are thinking. Children will also learn the life lesson that although it may seem very difficult to get things you want, if you never give up, there is always the opportunity to get what you are hoping for.
