“Dear Farmer Brown,
The barn is very cold at night. We’d like some electric blankets. Sincerely, the Cows.”
Farmer Brown can hardly believe it. Not only are his cows smart enough to use the old manual typewriter he’d left in the barn, but they have the guts to go on strike after he refuses to meet their demands. So starts the humorous battle of wills between a farmer and his farm animals with Attitudes. Each time Farmer Brown hears a “Click Clack Moo, Click Clack Moo, Clickety Clack MOO” he knows another typewritten demand is coming. Or more trouble! The hens cluck about blankets, too, and decide to join the strike. Farmer Brown receives another note:
“Closed! – No milk. No eggs.”
Both sides are as stubborn as old mules. Poor Duck is stuck in the middle, because it has to deliver the typewritten letters back and forth. When it seems like neither side will give in, the Cows come up up with a solution. Finally everyone seems happy…until one day Farmer Brown hears a familiar sound: “Click Clack Quack, Click Clack Quack, Clickety Clack QUACK!” Very funny book!
