Illustrated by Betsy Lewin

This "utterly" hilarious tale is sure to be a new favorite. The
story starts by describing Farmer Browns problem. The cows have found an old
typewriter in the barn. "All day long he hears Click, Clack, Moo.
Click, Clack, Moo. Clickety, Clack, Moo." Is it possible?.... Cows that
type! Farmer Brown soon finds that his cows are using their new typing
talent to make their life better.
"Dear Farmer Brown,
The barn is very cold at night.
We'd like some electric blankets.
When Farmer Brown refuses to provide the electric blankets, the cows go on
strike. They leave a note "No milk today!" The cows soon have the
hens on their side and again type their demand of electric blankets. Once
again the farmer refuses. Well, no blankets... no milk or eggs. Finally
Farmer Brown takes matters into his own hands and types a letter to the cows
making his own demands for milk and eggs. The letter is delivered by way of
a neutral party duck. Soon the two sides reach an agreement. The farmer will
supply the electric blankets if the cows give him the typewriter. Sure
enough, the cows and hens where fast asleep in the barn with their electric
blankets. But what happened to the typewriter. Farmer Brown will know in the
morning when he hears "Click, Clack, Quack!"
Betsy Lewin's wild line and bright watercolor
illustrations are a perfect match for this "moo"rvelous story. The
wonderful illustrations capture the humor of the whole situation.
I recommend this books for preschool children
