Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
AGERANGE: Ages 4 to 9.

While the farmer's away, the animals decide to form a punk band and go on tour. First, they have to repair and paint the broken down van in the pasture. At each stop, they play to sold-out houses, entertaining animals in Maine, Florida and Colorado; at each stop, they sing their new hit, "Wheels on the Van." But the farmer is scheduled to return from his tractor society conference on the same day as their last concert, and it is a race to see who will return home first. The animals return just minutes before the farmer and are able to resume their secret, farm animal identities as the farmer drives into the farmyard. The simple text is fun and easy to read. The illustrations tell an even deeper story than the text alone and will amuse adults as much as the story will entertain children. Reviewer: Danielle Williams

Kirkus Reviews
When Farmer Joe packs up for the National Tractor Society Conference in Reno, Punk Farm gears up for their first road trip, hot on the hooves of their previous successful concert. But Cow, Chicken, Goat, Pig and Sheep need a new "killer" song. As they head off in the newly painted, newly repaired Rock Van, a series of road mishaps (rain, flat tires, van breakdown) inspire their music. From Maine to Florida to Colorado, they perform renditions of "Wheels on the Bus:" As funny as the first, this sequel is a clever spoof that will have kids giggling and singing along. The acrylic illustrations of the shades-sporting animals-a kind of barnyard Blues Brothers-add their own brand of humor to the text. Rock on Punk Farm! Where to next?
