so funny!
This book is hilarious! The group of animal friends tries to decide who will get the ball out of the dark and scary doghouse, and Mouse is always sure to point the finger at someone else! The surprise ending will delight preschoolers and grownups alike.
not what I expected
I was really hoping for a "twist on the classic song" as the description says... unfortunately the twist is that they added in Pete the Cat and nothing else. The classic song is exactly the same. I was also a little creeped out that there are cats on the farm who look an awful lot like Pete even though Pete himself is the farmer.

That being said, the classic song of "Old McDonald had a Farm" IS pretty great! Pairing this book with a recording of the song or making up new verses would be fun!
Yetis get scared too!
Even Yeti gets scared at night sometimes when shadows creep up the wall! He gets very nervous every time he sees unfamiliar shapes, but they're only his precious animal friends. This is a great silly and soothing bedtime story, and works just as well at a night- or monster- themed storytime.
Great for storytelling!
I love telling this story to groups, with or without the book. It's a great alternative to more popular tricksters like Anansi. The pictures in this one are perfect for large or small groups.
If you like Mo Willems...
...then you'll love Preston and Andy! They're illustrated a lot like Elephant and Piggie, with a similar sense of humor. Preston will do anything to get Andy's attention, even if it means making noises or pestering him to no end. You'll be laughing on every page.
