Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 1-3–It's a wonder that anyone on the farm gets any sleep, what with a bat and an owl spending the night making mischief. Their run-in with a clothesline leads to some ghostly shenanigans with Emily the cow. After she gets even, the three animals decide to be friends. In this early chapter book, the plot moves forward with plenty of dialogue and just enough silliness. Simply told, with ample black-and-white illustrations, the story is excellent fare for newly independent readers.–Pat Leach, Lincoln City Libraries, NE
