HULLABALOO ACTIVITY COLORING BOOK SET

Overview

Farmer Brown heard thunder drumming. Lightning flashed; the air was humming. "Look out," he cried. "A twister's coming!" The twister roared, the twister grew, Horns and hooves and white wool blew, While fur and feet and feathers flew! But this is nothing compared to what happens when the twister drops Farmer Brown and his animals back to earth! Now pigs are mooing, cats are cooing...Will his farm ever be right again?

Overview

Farmer Brown heard thunder drumming. Lightning flashed; the air was humming. "Look out," he cried. "A twister's coming!" The twister roared, the twister grew, Horns and hooves and white wool blew, While fur and feet and feathers flew! But this is nothing compared to what happens when the twister drops Farmer Brown and his animals back to earth! Now pigs are mooing, cats are cooing...Will his farm ever be right again?

Author Biography: Teri Sloat lives with the sounds from her own pasture, as well as the sounds of the neighbor's chickens, goats, pigeons, sheep, and dairy cows. She is the author of several books, including The Thing That Bothered Farmer Brown, also illustrated by Nadine Bernard Westcott. It was selected as an ABA Pick of the Lists and praised by School Library Journal, which said, "Farmer Brown's battle with a mosquito is told in toe-tapping verse....This one hums right along with the best of them. A rousing story-hour offering that's frivolous and fun." Ms. Sloat lives in Sebastopol, California. Nadine Bernard Westcott is no stranger to animal sounds either—she's lived with almost every animal in this book. Her funny pictures can be found in countless popular children's books, including Never Take a Pig to Lunch and Other Poems About the Fun of Eating, an ABA Pick of the Lists, as well as Ann Whitford Paul's Hello Toes! Hello Feet!, which School Library Journal called "sheer fun, pure and simple." Ms. Westcott lives on the island of Nantucket, Massachusetts.

A twister strikes Farmer Brown's farm and mixes the animals all up, so that the cows oinked, sheep clucked, hens brayed, and his hound neighed.

Editorial Reviews

Horn Book Magazine
With an oink-oink here and an oink-oink there, Old Macdonald had an aptly ordered farm. But no such equilibrium awaits Sloat's Farmer Brown when a twister whisks Brown and his unsuspecting animals through the air, and lands them safely back home, but dramatically altered. "His cows oinked, / The pigs moo'd, / His sheep clucked, / The cat coo'd." Worst of all, when Brown attempts to speak, he emits a loud "cock-a-doodle-doo." Mayhem ensues: when Brown goes to milk his mooing sows, they are as confused as he; when he hitches his braying hens to plow the field, they scatter in chicken-brain fashion. Sloat's frisky verse captures all this barnyard bungle; artist Westcott is equally up to the confusion. Westcott delivers cartoon watercolor animals whose humor is apparent even before the twister arrives, but beginning when those animals get entwined with the clotheslines (and the farmer's underwear), all semblance of farmstead sanity disappears. Westcott gives the indignant, "bossy" rooster a central role. Now master of the domain, he arrogantly directs all activity with human speech, keeping the befuddled Farmer on the move. Young listeners, who already know how to oink and moo appropriately, will have a field day mixing it up with Farmer Brown's twistered farm.
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Sloat and Westcott, who teamed up for The Thing That Bothered Farmer Brown, offer tongue-twisting rhyme and two Farmer Brown-twisting tornadoes. As Farmer Brown completes his chores, a powerful wind sweeps him up along with all his animals. "While clouds of sheep swirled through the air,/ The clothesline chased the goat and mare/ Until each one had on a pair/ Of Farmer Brown's plaid underwear!" When the crowd crash-lands back in the barnyard, Farmer Brown discovers that something is amiss: "His cows oinked,/ The pigs moo'd,/ His sheep clucked,/ The cat coo'd." In the ensuing mayhem, sheep try to lay eggs, cows wallow in the mud and Farmer Brown crows "Cock-a-doodle-doo!" It takes the return of the twister to restore the group's proper personalities and behaviors. Sloat spins entertaining verse, and a silly mood prevails. Westcott composes cartoon voice bubbles that divulge a confused dog's "neigh" and a goat's "meow." Instead of illustrations that show the threatening storm, the whole cast suddenly appears in midair, wrapped in a swirl of white. The tornado theme may not be hilarious for Midwesterners, but if readers can handle The Wizard of Oz, this should be (ahem) a breeze. Ages 4-7. (Mar.)
Children's Literature - Linnea Hendrickson
In this tall tale in verse, a twister sweeps up Farmer Brown and his animals, mixing them up so that "His cows oinked,/The pigs moo'd,/ His sheep clucked,/ The cat coo'd" and Farmer Brown himself said, "COCK-A-DOODLE-DOO.." What to do? "Pet the goats-they keep meowing;/ Throw the mare her bone-she's howling!" It takes another twister to set things right. Westcott's bright watercolor illustrations are as crazy and frenetic as this story-a good one for reading aloud with its alliterative and rhyming language and mixed up animal sounds.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 3-In this companion book to The Thing That Bothered Farmer Brown (Orchard, 1995), a twister blows in and whirls the barnyard inhabitants, including Farmer Brown, up and down and all around. Although everyone lands safely, things are not the same: the "cows oinked,/The pigs moo'd," Farmer Brown is cock-a-doodle-dooing, and the rooster is running the farm. In time, another twister blows in, returning the barnyard to its previous state. The humor, text, and visual presentation are sharper and more effective than in the first book. Bright cartoon illustrations and bouncy rhymed narration punch up the silly story. Images of pigs being milked and animals in plaid and polka-dot underwear are sure to tickle young readers. This rhythmic narration will make for a lively read-aloud. Pair it with Bernard Most's Cock-a-Doodle-Moo! (Harcourt, 1996) and score a 10 on the storytime giggle meter.-Heide Piehler, Shorewood Public Library, WI
Kirkus Reviews
A wild and silly tale is told in rhyme. Farmer Brown enjoys a calm before a storm, listening to the happy sounds of his animals: "Pigs that oinked,/Cows that moo'd,/Sheep that baa'd,/ Doves that coo'd." A twister hits the farm, scooping up the animals and setting them down gently; while they are not injured, all the languages get mixed up. Farmer Brown can only utter rooster cries, and the rooster, in English, is calling the shots. Cows oink, and clucking sheep are assumed to be laying eggs. It takes another twister to set things right, although the farmer occasionally still crows. The clever and expertly written story will tickle the funny bones of the nursery-school set, although the clutter of the comic illustrations—with dialogue balloons, lines indicating movement, and frenetic action—makes this better for lap-sharing than story hours. (Picture book. 3-6) .
