Overview

It’s the most irresistible, the noisiest, the wildest farm caper ever—and a great way to share animal names and sounds with young ones. The lively rhymes and bright, vivid illustrations will make this a classic favorite with kids.

The game is on, with a MOO, then a BLEAT, BOW-WOW, and MEOW. What started the ruckus? Well, the bull chased the cow. Then the farmer’s wife joined in, shouting “STOP, STOP!” Soon, the farmer is running after them, with the goose, the goat, and the dog. The cat can’t resist; he’s catching up fast. And they’re all making a racket. What a to-do. There’s honking and shouting, barking, meows, and moo-moos. Did you ever hear a noisier farm in your life? As the fun builds with the addition of noises from page to page, toddlers will happily sing out the sounds along with the animals.

All the farm animals in this cumulative tale get into the act when the bull starts chasing the cow around the pasture.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
A farm goes from quiet to noisy and back again in this ho-hum semi-cumulative escapade. ``Because the bull was chasing the cow, the farmer's wife shouted, `Stop, stop, you big, old bull!' and chased them around the pasture,'' Ziefert (Pete's Chicken) begins. Soon, the farmer leaps into the fray, a curious goat joins in, and a ``bow wowing'' dog, honking goose and meowing cat bring up the rear. In Bolam's (The House That Jack Built) vision of the busy scene, rough-hewn trees of orange and blue grow from blue-and-green-striped fields, and the sky is likely to be yellow or red. The characters-with the exception of a pink-and-orange cat-are shown as relatively naturalistic cartoons, outlined in thin black strokes. Despite the surreal foliage, the illustrations are no more singular than the plot. So many books invite readers to moo and cackle along; it takes more than this conventional offering to keep up with the pack. Ages 3-up. (Apr.)
Children's Literature - Judy Katsh
This is a cumulative tale that introduces farm animal sounds and imagines farm animal antics. Although young readers may be disappointed that they never learn why the bull was chasing the cow in the first place, they will cheerfully follow along with the parade of animals that joins the chase. Bold illustrations and repetitive refrains carry the day at this farm.
