A hilarious send-up of animal sounds!

It's a noisy morning in the barnyard: roosters crowing, cows mooing, mice squeaking! And the farmer's cat has had enough. With a flick of his tail, the cat casts a spell and the barnyard is turned upside-down. The chickens are oinking, the sheep are barking, and the sheepdog can only let out a confused "Baa?" It's not long before the animals figure out who's to blame...

Emma Dodd's bright, bold illustrations bring this farm full of very confused animals to life, and her hilarious rhyming text is sure to send young readers giggling (and mooing, and cock-a-doodle-dooing!).

When an orange cat gets fed up with the noise on the farm, the emerald-eyed grump proves that he's more of a "familiar" than an ordinary barn cat: "for he loved casting spells and doing magic."
