I have been tired before. I have been so tired, I have fallen asleep in strange places and odd positions. But I have never been so tired that I could crawl into my bed without noticing that a cow, two pigs, three ducks, and a yak were crashed there after spending the day in my house. I can only assume that Mrs. Brown was still heavily medicated when she was released from the hospital on the day this story begins. I'm a little concerned about the quality of healthcare she receives in this town.

This story is a wonderful example of a fantasy story for young children. It is very humorous and has great illustrations that add to the humor.

Recommends it for: anyone
A wonderfully fun rhyming adventure. Great for the younger set, but still fun to read for the grown-ups. Has some surprising twists as well! Not too short, not too long. I really liked it and will look for a copy for our family bookshelves.

This book is fun for students to read and listen to. This book has rhyming text and a silly theme. It would be a good story to focus on the reading comprehension skill, story structure. This story also requires the reader to make preditions throughout the text.
