Illustrated by Katherine McEwen. Walker Books, 2010. ISBN 978 1406326321.
Picture book, Pre school. A rhyming version of an old song, Cows in the kitchen is given a shake up in this vibrant, exuberant picture book aimed at younger readers. Each double page has a different line, Sheep on the sofa, baa baa baa, is one an the pictures ont eh page show the sheep all over the patch work sofa, having a great time. Each double page shows a different set of animals causing mayhem in the farmhouse. But where is the farmer? Asleep, of course, and when he wakes he turfs out all the animals, but in falling asleep again, they creep back in. Reading, singing, or yelling out loud, this book will be a hit with younger readers. The colourful pages are full of interest for the very young, and the repetitive rhyme encourages them to join in.
