What's more fun than a clowder of cats, a rafter of turkeys, a swarm of bees, or a pack of dogs? Herd of Cows Flock of Sheep -the latest word play from the king of language arts picture books, Rick Walton.
After bringing in his corn, potatoes, beans, and tomatoes before a rainstorm, Farmer Bob decides to settle down for a good night's rest. While he snoozes away, the river rises high enough to set his bed afloat down the river. This sends his animals into a panic-a drove of pigs outlines a plan, a colony of beavers races to chew down trees, a school of fish tries to create a dam, and so forth, until finally Farmer Bob is rescued by a nest of snakes and a herd of horses. It's a barnyard adventure that will leave bands of children begging for more.
Author of Once There Was a Bull frog, Bullfrog Pops and many other wonderful children's books, Rick Walton lives with his wife and four children in Provo, Utah, where he writes on whatever is available and gets pretty much what he deserves. You can find out more about Rick at www.rickwalton.com.
