Barnyard Slamby Dian Curtis Regan, Paul Meisel (Illustrator)
The barnyard is going hog wild! Yo Mama Goose has her geathers full trying to host a poetry contest without raising the rafters. Writers are sensitive creatures; and all of the animals want to strut their stuff, including Yo Mama herself. With tempers flaring--and noise levels rising--Farmer and Son are sure to hear the commotion. None of the animals can afford to horse around, and it will take a genuine artist to bring peace back to the barn.
This tongue-in-beak tale is sure to amuse and inspire poets and animal lovers alike.
