A gorgeous first picture book which demands to be read aloud by an exciting new author/illustrator about a rowdy and rollicking farm.

Suzanne Chitwood's show stopping, eye-popping art style is bound to be the buzz of the season. Drawn in a classical style and "painted" in papers and other materials from top-secret sources, Suzanne's mud-bathing piggies, wiggling weather vanes, be-bop frogs, and groovy owl appear to emerge from the pages of the book. And her musical text features onomatopoeic sounds and funky rhythms that make this book perfect for reading aloud.

Unfortunately, the text can’t support the illustrations: a forced rhyme comments on each individual spread with no attempt to create any kind of narrative, so the reader gets a disconnected string of animals and objects.
