It seems that all of the animals on the farm have taken to the fields when Brother wakes up one morning. Not only are the cows in the corn refusing to budge, but the pigs are in the figs, the goats are in the oats, the rams are in the yams, and the bees are in the peas! Sister, Uncle, Auntie, and Father are all at a loss as to what to do. But when Mother hears of the calamity, she has no problem controlling the animals. She just uses her big spoon to make lots of noise and she rousts them all out! James Young's delightfully rhythmic story and colorful, sweet illustrations are sure to charm young readers.
