Synopsis

Come billy-bob the bebop and slink-slank a samba! An infectiously rhythmic read-aloud pairs up with charming illustrations, inviting us to step lively - and enjoy our differences.


"What a moo-oon," crooned the cow beside the barn.
"Maa-agnificent night," bleated a goat in the grass.

It’s the night of the full moon, and the barnyard animals just can’t settle down. Pig declares it’s a fine night for a snufflin’ big dance, and two by two the animals sashay down to the pond to jig and fandango under the round moon. But when the bumptious clouds blow across, and the revelers dance on in the dark, a mix-up ensues - a tangle! Will the unexpected muddle turn out to be unexpectedly . . . wonderful?

The combination of moonglow, a cricket's catchy "zweet-zweet-zweet" and a frog's basso backbeat ("thrum, thrum, thrum") proves too irresistible for a collection of farm animals, who learn a thing or two about being a partner in Schaefer's (Down in the Woods at Sleepytime) gently humorous tale.
