The end result is shown in gorgeous full illustrations that bring the whole story to a pleasing end. The author included a recipe in the back of the book for toasted pumpkin seeds, facts and trivia, and the answers to her question what was Evy doing?
This book is beautifully illustrated in bright bold colours all the way through. It's a fun story that pulls the reader in to notice all that's going on.
What we loved about it most was the absurdity of it. When the book stated raining buckets; it was literally raining buckets. When the chickens flew the coop like feather dusters in the wind, pigs dancing around a May pole. It was just a funny book with fun pics to go along with it.
Colorful, funny and mysteries, this book will have kids wondering what Evy was doing until the very last page when it is put to the interruption of the reader. Was Evy really just baking the biggest pie ever or was she just allowing the animals to be who they really are when no one is watching. The world will never know but the reader at least gets to see some silly animals and a very busy young farmer.
