Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Milgrim's (Time to Get Up, Time to Go) ingenious, giggle-inducing paper-over-board spoof of the classic kid's song stars a farm boy named MacDonald who plays mad scientist, complete with lab coat. With the help of a homemade transmogrifier, he turns a horse and pig into a "A Hig! Ee-i-ee-i-o./ With an Oink-Neigh here,/ And an Oink-Neigh there,/ Here an Oink, there a Neigh,/ Everywhere an Oink-Neigh." He pictures a horse with a pig's head and curlicue tail, and barnyard critters agape (a sheep even stands on its hind legs). Next up are a deese (donkey-goose), shicken (sheep-chicken) and muck (mouse-duck). While it's clear that none of these amalgamated animals minds too much-Milgrim depicts them skateboarding, swimming and even playing polo with their creator-turnabout is fair play, and Young MacDonald soon finds himself transformed into a "bog" (boy-dog, portrayed as a human with a dog's head and tail). The author's crisp, na f-editorial renderings and airbrushed colors match the playful simplicity of the text and theme, and the spreads bubble with a giddy glee that never wears out its welcome. Luckily, all ends happily: Young MacDonald has everyone correctly reassembled just in time to enjoy a pizza dinner. Ages 5-up. (May) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature - Barbara Troisi
Clad in white lab coat, Scientist David wheels the components for a madcap machine into the barn. Presto! An invention that pairs names, sounds, and bodies of animals is soon creating a new sing-along version of a familiar tune accompanied by full- of-life two-page illustrations. The mix-and-match begins with the title—a switch from the familiar "Old MacDonald." Little do the farm animals that grace the cover, suspect that they'll become a twosome on the platform of David's apparatus. Move to the title page and find him pondering the tasks to come. The adventure gets under way as he teams up a horse and pig, donkey and goose, sheep and chicken, duck and mouse, cow and owl. The matching game goes astray when the cat tips the lever while David and the dog are on the platform and a "bog" is created. Lickety-split! It's time to make everything right and soon all enjoy a pizza reward. Later the whiz kid falls fast asleep hugging his cat and having continued his research with a book titled Cloning. Charming characters and actions invite young readers to browse the animal antics and sing aloud to new words of a familiar tune.

K-Gr 4-Grab your overalls, Old MacDonald, and step aside for Young MacDonald, a lab-coated techno genius who is going to make some changes on the farm. As the livestock curiously gaze on, the aspiring Dr. Frankenstein constructs his mysterious gizmo in the barn. The boy places a horse and a pig on the platform and before you can say "Ee-i-ee-i-o," he turns them into a "Hig-With an Oink-Neigh here,/And an Oink-Neigh there-." The animals are amused and astounded as the youngster creates skateboarding "Deese" ("Hee-Honk"), a swimming "Shicken" ("Baak-Baa"), a plane-flying "Muck" ("Quack-Squeak"), and a polo-playing "Cowl" ("Moo-Hoo"). However, the experiment goes awry when Young MacDonald steps onto the platform with his dog and the mischievous cat throws the switch (oops!). The creatures roll with laughter at the sight of the resulting "Bog" ("Oops-Arf"). As his parents arrive home with pizza, the boy quickly makes things right and everyone settles down to eat. The lyrics are great fun and have lots of wordplay. Milgrim's simple, muted cartoons of modern-day life on the farm hit just the right note. Filled with silly humor, this zesty rendition of a traditional favorite will have wide appeal. Pair it with Lenny Hort's The Seals on the Bus (Holt, 2000) for a laugh-out-loud sing-along.-Linda Staskus, Parma Regional Library, OH Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
A young vivisectionist recombines the livestock in this "Old MacDonald" outtake. To verses constructed along familiar lines, the lab-coated farm lad in Milgrim's lighthearted cartoons cobbles together a device from found junk that painlessly puts a pig's head atop a horse's body to make a "Hig," then produces feathered "Deese," that call out "Hee-Honk," a woolly "Shicken" ("Baak-Baa") and so on in quick succession. An accident while stepping onto the machine with a dog gives the budding Doctor Moreau a taste of his own medicine ("with an Oops-Arf here / And an Oops-Arf there"), but he manages to restore the natural order just as his parents come back carrying pizza for all. He's last seen tucked into bed with a book on cloning. Milgrim's portmanteau creations aren't as creatively mixed as those in Jack Prelutsky's Scranimals (2002, illustrated by Peter S's) or Kenyon Cox's Mixed Beasts (2005, illustrated by Wallace Edwards), but younger audiences will enjoy this playful (and topical) rendition of the sing-along favorite.

    My kids loved this book! Sung along to the music from "Old MacDonald," this is a great bedtime story. <BR/><BR/>Young MacDonald has been busy making robotic animals--animals that are combinations from some of the old favorites! <BR/><BR/>He's made a hig (horse and pig) and some deese (donkey and geese), and singing the chorus to the song with these unusual sounds is a real treat. <BR/><BR/>Definitely a fun, imaginative book with great full-color illustrations.
