Punk Farm: the animals let loose & get wild

Punk Farm, by Jarrett Krosoczka.
New York : Alfred A. Knopf, 2005.
ages 4 - 7

When the farmer is away, the animals will PARTY! Night falls, and the barn becomes the stage for the best animal rock band. Old MacDonald had a farm, and boy did they get down and dirty. OK, not quite dirty, but loud. The illustrations are great, and I can just imagine parents who themselves loved to rock out when they were young playing up all the silly voices and antics.

This will appeal to all little kids (and their folks!) who dream of being a rock star. Definitely recommended for little rockers out there.

The author has developed a fun website, complete with punk music: You can also watch a preview to get a sense of the story: Punk Farm Preview.

The book is available at Amazon, the Berkeley Public Library and the Oakland Public Library. While you're at it, check out the sequel: Punk Farm on Tour.
