I have been tired before. I have been so tired, I have fallen asleep in strange places and odd positions. But I have never been so tired that I could crawl into my bed without noticing that a cow, two pigs, three ducks, and a yak were crashed there after spending the day in my house. I can only assume that Mrs. Brown was still heavily medicated when she was released from the hospital on the day this story begins. I'm a little concerned about the quality of healthcare she receives in this town.

That said, this book is a riot. The farm animals vote to move into Mrs. Brown's house - all but the mouse, who doesn't want any part of this terrible idea. My son was both appalled and delighted by what the animals get up to unsupervised.

Yee is one of our favorite authors of children's picture books. I particularly love how skilled he is with language. He never forces a rhyme, and he's willing to let things almost-rhyme when it suits the story. That's appreciated by this mom who's read too many contorted verses in her nine-year parenting career.
