Editorial Reviews

Review

"[A] hilarious reinterpretation of a familiar ...story ... a Noah's Ark of assorted hungry ... beasties ... will have an audienceof readers age 2-7 rolling in the aisles--or the pastry crumbs--and huntingevery page to find the ... animal action ... [G]oes way beyond funny caricature andwill leave enraptured gigglers in its wake." - Midwest Book Review
"Ma MacDonald is having a rough time keeping pests out of her kitchen, and her husband is no help. Ma MacDonald Flees the Farm is full of fun rhymes and clever plays on words which makes the book fun to read aloud. The illustrations are filled with creatures getting into Ma MacDonald's food, but not all of them are obvious and it takes a little searching to find each animal referred to in the text. A real treat." Author Connie Walker"Ma MacDonald Flees the Farm is a delightful learning picture book for tots. Author Karl Beckstrand, a creator of a number of picture books, makes identifying the various animals a fun vocabulary building activity. But the humor will bring a smile to the lips of adults as well. The colorful and charming illustrations are the work of the talented illustrator Alycia Mark. I would recommend this book for children two (read to them) and up." - Author David Wilcox
