When heavy medical books are removed from a dining room table, it floats out the front door. All of the farm animals jump on the table to hold it down, but it still floats like a balloon into space. By working together and collecting space junk, the animals bring the table home again. The book stimulates the imagination of children and shows the benefits of working together even though the animals are very different from one another.

About the Author

Dr. Shelley is a retired dermatologist. She grew up in Missouri, spending weekends on a farm with friendly horses. She, her husband, and three children lived for many years on a "farmette" in NW Ohio, surrounded by many of the animals in this story. This is the second in a series of books she has written and Eleanor Hutton has illustrated.
