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. The author focuses on the kind of antics that children may find amusing and it has a skillful rhyming text to it which the students would enjoy immensely. One of the main characters, Mrs. Brown, goes to the hospital after an accident and her farm animals decide to move into her house. They do all sorts of crazy things and wreak havoc inside the house!

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.
