    책 내용
    Plucky barnyard denizens unite to improve their working conditions in this hilarious debut picture book from Cronin (appropriately enough, an attorney). Farmer Brown is dumbfounded when his cows discover an old typewriter in the barn and begin experimenting ('All day long he hears click, clack, moo. Click, clack, moo. Clickety clack moo'). Things really get out of hand when the cows began airing their grievances. Lewin (Araminta"s Paint Box) conveys the fellow"s shock as he reads: 'Dear Farmer Brown, The barn is very cold at night. We"d like some electric blankets. Sincerely, The Cows.' When Farmer Brown denies the cows" request, the bovine organizers go on strike. Through the use of the man"s shadow, Lewin communicates his rage: the straw in his hat creates the appearance of his hair on end. With help from a neutral duck mediator, the exasperated Farmer Brown finally makes concessions. But, much to his dismay, the cows are not the only creatures that can type. Cronin humorously turns the tables on conventional barnyard dynamics Lewin"s bold, loose-lined watercolors set a light and easygoing mood that matches Farmer Brown"s very funny predicament. Kids and underdogs everywhere will cheer for the clever critters that calmly and politely stand up for their rights, while their human caretaker becomes more and more unglued. Ages 3-7.
