PreS-Gr 1-In a go-getting display of exuberance, a farmer, pig, cow, chicken, and dog create a farm in a day. Starting with barn building and painting it in rainbow hues, continuing through pouring the fields from bags of "instant farm field" and planting jelly-bean and pizza crops, strategically placing haystacks and scarecrows, and capping it all off with a night sky; this fantasy landscape takes shape. The cartoon characters caper across the warmly colored spreads on oddly disjointed bodies that seem just right for the premise of a magical mystery farm. The book ends as Chicken tells her pajama-clad pals a bedtime story: "Once upon a time...there were five friends. Together they made one wonderful farm." Libraries looking for material on imaginative play may want to consider this funny romp.-Marge Loch-Wouters, La Crosse Public Library, WI (c) Copyright 2010.

In this eccentric story-within-a-story, five friends (a farmer, dog, pig, cow, and chicken) get together to create a farm. The group fashions the farm from scratch on the blank page, spreading dirt, building a barn, planting favorite crops, and finally adding the sky�by simply painting it onto the page. Then they all retire and listen to a bedtime story told by the chicken: �Once upon a farm there were five friends. Together they made one wonderful farm. The end.� The overall concept might confuse some readers, but many will enjoy the cheerful camaraderie of the bug-eyed cast as they have a fun day on the brightly colored pages. The figures are rather stark, cutout-shaped cartoons though just as irrepressibly fun as Anderson�s illustrations in such books as Cynthia Lord�s Hot Rod Hamster (2010). For another example of barnyard high jinks, check out Doreen Cronin�s Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type (2000). Preschool-Grade 1. --Randall Enos
