What's that noise coming from the barn? Click, clack, moo? Could the cows be typing? Impossible, the farmer thinks.

But it is possible, and it is happening (on this farm, at least). And it's serious business. The cows want the farmer to know that they have certain needs (i.e., electric blankets for chilly nights). So they type and post their demands daily. When the farmer refuses, the cows refuse to give milk. Soon the chickens join in by refusing to lay eggs. It's a barnyard battle of wits! Will either side give an inch…a blanket…or a gallon of milk?

This classic, award-winning read-aloud will delight young audiences (and their grown-ups) with fresh humor and witty characterizations.

Editorial Reviews

"The thickly outlined pictures extend the fun, with closeups of the frenzied boss, the stalwart cows, and the hens cozy under their plugged-in blankets." —Booklist Online

"Kids and underdogs everywhere will cheer for the clever critters that calmly and politely stand up for their rights, while their human caretaker becomes more and more unglued." —Publishers Weekly
