April Foolishness

April Foolishness

by Teresa Bateman Illustrated by Nadine Westcott

It's a spring morning on the farm. Grandma is happy the grandkids are visiting — they've picked just the right day! — and Grandpa is fixing breakfast.

Suddenly his grandson reports that the cows have got loose! He thinks Big Brown Bessie just stepped on a goose! "Good gracious," Grandpa says as he pours himself a glass of milk. When his granddaughter shouts the chickens are out, Grandpa cooks up some eggs. Pigs broke the gate? Grandpa fries bacon. Why is Grandpa so cool? Because he knows the kids are trying to play an April Fool's trick!
