Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Poor Mr. McPeepers. His cows took his glasses so they could have a day of fun, and Mr. McPeepers sets out to find them. He stops by the lake, a swimming hole, the schoolyard, the ballpark, and a barn dance, but never sees his cows. Of course they are everywhere he looks, except without his glasses, Mr. McPeepers just can't see them. What fun those cows are having! When he finally returns home, Mr. McPeepers sees something shiny and realized it is his glasses. He puts them on just in time to see his cows returning home after a day's vacation. The end of the book reveals that the cows are planning another vacation. The story is great, and the illustrations are simply hilarious. The sense of humor of the illustrator is fantastic, and children will love looking at this book over and over again. This is quite likely to become a family favorite where adults will have as much fun reading the book as the children will have listening to it. 2003, First Impressions, Ages 4 to 7.

K-Gr 3-Farmer McPeepers's cows "are up to no good." They've snitched the nearsighted man's glasses and taken off for a day on the town. He looks for them at the fishing pond, the swimming hole, the playground, the ballpark, and even the "moovies." Of course, the joke is on the myopic farmer as the cows are playing and cavorting in full view. They're fishing and boating, swimming, and Rollerblading. The stands are packed with bovine fans cheering on the Bulls. And there's a long line of cows waiting at the theater to see Cowabunga Summer. After searching unsuccessfully all day, Farmer returns to the barn where he notices something shiny-his glasses. He dons the specs just in time to see the dairymaids' return. The last page reveals the milkers planning their next vacation. The text plays the "straight man" while the illustrations give the punch lines. However, the real humor is in the garishly colored cartoons. The artist, whose trademark style includes large bulging eyes, has covered Farmer's swollen orbs with squinty eyelids, but the other characters have their eyes wide open. Interesting angles and points of view make these paintings a step above many cartoon illustrations. Young listeners will love the silliness while beginning readers will giggle at the more obvious jokes. Older readers will catch the more subtle humor.-Carolyn Janssen, Children's Learning Center of the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County, OH Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
