Oh Crumps:Ay Caramba Hardcover – August 28, 2006

From School Library Journal
PreSchool-Grade 2-Poor Farmer Felandro is in dire need of a good night's rest and is all too aware that, "Morning comes early." But sleep is not in the cards for the hapless farmer, who is awakened again and again by his animals needing to be let out of barns, taken into barns, put in pens, shut in stalls, etc. Just when he gets one group down, another goes off, until finally morning has come and he can just get up. Students will be amused as the poor farmer lists off his chores for the next day in a more and more garbled form. What starts out as "-milk the cows, repair the fence, mow the hay, and climb the silo" ends up: "-repair the cow, climb the fence, milk the hay, and mow the silo." The acrylic illustrations are charmingly blocky, done in warm earth-toned colors and comfortingly round shapes. The Spanish translation, located on the bottom half of each page and separated from the English by an inset drawing, is clear, crisp, and maintains the humor of the English original. Pair this book with Doreen Cronin's Click, Clack, Moo (S & S, 2000) for a barnyard-themed storytime featuring strong-willed animals.
