A fun quick read.
My Storytime group (0-5) quite enjoyed this book. Once they caught on that the animals were using various vehicles for ships, they were calling out what they thought the animals would use next. The only thing I didn't like is that the book and pictures are quite small and therefore the children kept inching closer to see better.
The farm animals are bored. Rather than allow boredom to occur one ringleader pig invents a pirate storyline. As pirates, they use whatever items come their way cardboard box, car, etc.

A tie in activity would be to bring in cardboard box then have students invent a use for it.

This is the kind of book that would have been in the check-out pile at the library. The kids and I would have read it and it would then land in the take-back-to-the-library pile. The pictures are cute but...

It didn't read well on the Kindle, but was nice on Kindle PC.

the animals were bored so they decided to became pirates; they used a scholl bus, a fire engine and a plane.
I didn't like it at all.

Recommends it for: Farmers who have one-eyed kids.
The animals on the farm are bored so they decide to play pirates and basically hijack various vehicles for their piracy. Storyline and art are somewhat bland.
