CLICK, CLACK, MOO – COWS THAT TYPE – View on Amazon
by Doreen Cronin; illustrated by Betty Lewin; published (2000) by Simon & Shuster
Click, clack, moo. Click, clack, moo. Clickety, clack, moo.
Farmer Brown has a problem. His cows can type!
Dear Farmer Brown,
The barn is very cold at night. We’d like some electric blankets.
“Impossible!” thinks Farmer Brown. “No way,” says Farmer Brown.
Click, clack, moo. Click, clack, moo, respond the cows.
We’re closed. No milk today.
What? Farmer Brown is furious and if THAT doesn’t take the cake, the hens are cold too.
They’d like electric blankets.
Farmer Brown will not give in, the hens withhold their eggs and Duck, the neutral party, comes waddling in with a typed ultimatum. It’s a great ultimatum for the critters and a DUCKLOAD of trouble for Farmer Brown!
Definitely one of the best books I’ve read yet. Silly and imaginative. An unusual premise – some writers have the neatest ideas!
And let’s not forget the funny, funny Betsy Lewin.
