Farmer Brown
has a problem.
His cows like to type.
All day long he hears
Click, clack, MOO.
Click, clack, MOO.
Clickety, clack, MOO.
But Farmer Brown's problems REALLY begin when his cows start leaving him notes....
Doreen Cronin's understated text and Betsy Lewin's expressive illustrations make the most of this hilarious situation. Come join the fun as a bunch of literate cows turn Farmer Brown's farm upside down.

The cows have found a typewriter, and they have a demand for Farmer Brown: if you want milk, we’re going to need some heated blankets for the cold nights in the barn first. Farmer Brown refuses, so the hens join the strike: no heated blankets for the coop, no eggs. This is a laugh-out-loud funny book that I loved when I was younger and still love now. Just know that if you read this to a kid, you might have to explain what a typewriter is - and maybe what a strike is, too. It’s so very worth it.
