Description

As a young boy spins a rhythmic yarn about the animals he feeds by yonder tree, a parade of baa-ing, quacking, and mooing farm animals gathers. When they all doze off, it’s the boy’s turn for something scrumptious! 
      With hidden details to discover in the illustrations and plenty of repetition in the text, young children will enjoy joining in on this read-aloud. Now part of the Folk Tale Classics series, with gold foil stamping on the cover, this one is sure to become a story time favorite!


About the Author

Paul Galdone was born in Budapest, Hungary in 1907 and emigrated to the United States in 1928. After finishing his studies at the Art Student League and the New York School of Industrial Design, Mr. Galdone worked in the art department of a major publishing house. There he was introduced to the process of bookmaking, an activity that was soon to become his lifelong career. Before his death in 1986, Mr. Galdone illustrated almost three hundred books, many of which he himself wrote or retold. He is fondly remembered for his contemporary style, bright earthy humor, and action-filled illustrations, which will continue to delight for generations to come.
