From the author of National Book Award finalist Hey, Kiddo.

After a long day of work, Farmer Joe goes home to bed.

But meanwhile, back at the barn . . .
Cow sets up her drums.
Pig plugs in his amp.
Goat tunes his bass.
Chicken sets up her keyboards.
And Sheep checks the microphone.

They are Punk Farm and tonight they're ready to ROCK!

With adorable farm animals - and a surprise tribute to Old MacDonald - this rollicking tale is sure to have kids cheering—and singing—along.

I bought this for a gift for the 2 year-old I nanny. She loves animals, she loves music, and loves books. When she unwrapped the gift the first words out were "I love this book". Now she hadn't actually seen the book before but clearly it caught her eye. She immediatley asked me to read it to her which I did enthusiastically. As we finished she asked to read it again. It has been a while since I got her the book but it is still frequently read during the day and she looks at it before nap. The book is simple and a fun play on the classic Old McDonald. If your kids like music, books and animals it's worth a shot.

Anything by Krosoczka is preschool gold! You've never heard "Old MacDonald" quite like this! The illustrations are great. The animals each have their own unique personality. The sequel's equally hilarious... "Punk Farm on Tour"!

Punk Farm answers the age-old question of what farm animals do when the farmer's away. No, Snowball and Napoleon don't stage a revolution in this story - the pig in Punk Farm has better things to do: amping up his electric guitar and wailing out a punk rock rendition of "Old MacDonald Had a Farm" along with sheep on vocals, chicken on keyboard, goat on bass, and cow on drums.My daughter thought it was good fun. This isn't the sort of book you can read in a meek voice, and my throat was a little sore after each reading (I'm so not punk). The writing isn't particularly inspired - it's the reader's "performance" and illustrations that carry this one. (Ages 1½-4)

Can I just say, this book R-O-C-K-S?!?! Jarrett Krosockzka has created a book for all the Riot Grrls out there who are now dressing their toddlers in leather and Baby Doc Martens. Jarrett K has taken the familiar standard "Old MacDonald Had a Farm" and turned it upside down and inside out with the addition of a band of punkified barnyard animals duded up in leather, sunglasses and headbands. The band takes the stage after the farmer goes to sleep, and they spend the night rockin' the barn full of fourlegged critters. The text is spare but perfect, but it is the illustrations that make this book memorable. I especially liked the horses acting as bouncers/security. I'd certainly never mess with 'em! Cindy is going to do this one at storytime in a couple weeks and have Dave come in with all his instruments. And can I just say, was I surprised that Parma owned this book? Nope. Cathy, you ROCK, too!

as the storytime lady at a local barnes and noble, i must say, Punk Farm is one of the greatest picture books ever!!! I love the illustrations! I love the fact that the animals as well as the farmer get up and work hard everyday, but when nighttime comes, it's time for the animals to show their true colors!
