*On a personal note, I was out of the office for most of February and March, and I’m slowly getting back up to speed here on the blog, the Quacktory newsletter, on queries and requesteds, and of course my clients and client reading. Thanks again everybody for your patience, and without further ado…*
The Wind Plays Tricks
The wind swirls through the farmyard one dark night. It tears around the farmyard, over the meadows, past the pond. It blows so hard and so long that all the animals howl, too. And in the sunny morning, the animals learn that the wind has played tricks on them. Pig goes, “Cluck!” Little Chicks go, “Neigh!” Hens go, “Moo!” Horse goes “Cock-a-Doodle-Dooo!” Cow goes “Quack!” And Rooster—well, Rooster goes, “Cheep!” Can the animals work together to find a solution and get their right voices back?
Kirkus Reviews said:
“Chua’s cartoon barnyard is bright, and her animals, expressive, their faces and body language slightly anthropomorphized.
…a fun visit to a mixed-up barnyard.” – Kirkus Reviews
I also love this book trailer from Storyteller Chicago!
