A young farmer brings his toy barnyard to life in Jane Cowen-Fletcher’s idyllic celebration of the innocence and wonder of childhood.

Will loves farm animals. He loves to say, Neigh! Moo! Baa! and Wink! He has a special farmer’s hat and his own little horse, cow, sheep, and pig. His family calls him Farmer Will. The author-illustrator of the best-selling BABY ANGELS brings her gentle focus to a familiar image of childhood — that of a child engaged in imaginary play with favorite toys. Sparely, eloquently told, and illustrated in the soft colors of a country springtime, this book will speak volumes to young children who are devoted to their toys, and who know how to live and play in the world of the imagination.

The author/artist demonstrates her keen understanding of a child's sense of imaginative play, as Will gleefully and determinedly throws his entire body into the act of running and frolicking.
