Little, Brown Books for Young Readers June 2011

Some books are born to be read aloud and this is one of them. We all learned a while back that cows can type and will use that skill to get their moos heard by the farmer. So, no one should be at all surprised to learn that pigs do not want to take a bath and will write their farmer to be sure he gets the message. In this story on a "warm day in early May" our Farmer decides to wash all of his animals. It's a spring cleaning sort of thing that he has in mind. As he stands and surveys his corrals and his sties, the animals greet him with a bit of surprise. Oh, he has the pail and the soap to make suds but his idea of washing his animals is a dud. The pigs close up the sty and dig in their trotters no matter what Farmer tries. He lures them with pizza and takes to the skies. It's Farmer against Pig and so far the pigs are definitely crafty enough to win the skirmishes. Pictures filled with energy and always lathered in humor, the pages turn faster and faster as we wait to see who will win the war. Ages 4-7 40 pages
