This book is about farm animals like cows, hens and ducks. The cows want electric blankets because they are cold at night so they keep typing notes on a typewriter to Farmer Brown (the farmer). It always sounds like this: “Click, clack moo, Click clack moo, Clickety clack moo.” The cows go on strike. Then the hens want electric blankets too. So Farmer Brown exchanges the blankets for the typewriter. Then the ducks want something too.
This book is really funny because the animals type in it and animals NEVER type. My favorite part is when the ducks want something too because then three animals have been typing on the typewriter. When I first read this book I laughed so hard because cows and other animals usually don’t type. The pictures are funny when Farmer Brown are in them because it looks like the animals are driving him crazy!
I think that people who like to laugh a lot should read this book because it is really funny. I think all ages would LOVE this book.
