Young listeners will love the silliness while beginning readers will giggle at the more obvious jokes. Older readers will catch the more subtle humor. –School Library Journal
The story is great, and the illustrations are simply hilarious. The sense of humor of the illustrator is fantastic, and children will love looking at this book over and over again.
review of all:
“I likd the part of Farmer McPeepers rideing his donkey.
I likd the part win the cow stowd the glassis.”
– Grant, a kindergarten student
“Late one summer’s evening, on Farmer McPeepers’ farm, the milk cows were up to no good.”
Clever bovines borrow Farmer’s glasses so they can have a day out on the town—and, boy, do they enjoy themselves. Farmer searches everywhere, but without his glasses, he can’t seem to locate them. It’s only when they return home (and return his glasses!) that Farmer McP gets a glimpse of what’s been going on.
