Book Description

2 Jun 2003 Clicka Clack Moo
Farmer Brown has a problem. His cows like to type. All day long he hears Click, clack, moo. Click, clack, moo. Clickety, clack, moo. But the problems really begin when the cows start leaving Farmer Brown notes. First it was electric blankets...where will it end? And when the animals don't get what they want they go on strike, of course! Doreen Cronin's unusual text and Betsy Lewin's quirky illustrations make this a hilarious story.

Amazon Review

Click, Clack, Moo is, of course, the sound of a typing cow. When Farmer Brown's cows start leaving him typed notes and demanding better conditions, a stand-off is inevitable--until neutral Duck steps in to mediate. Doreen Cronin's original storyline is perfectly complemented by the bold illustrative style of Betsy Lewin in this refreshingly unsentimental picture book. With its quirky humour and sophisticated vocabulary Click, Clack, Moo cleverly ensures that adults will enjoy reading the story aloud as often as young listeners will want to hear it. --Helen Baker --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.


"A funny picture book for kids 4+."

4.0 out of 5 stars This will keep them aMOOsed for hours. 5 July 2002
I own this book and really enjoy reading it to my 20 month old daughter. I think the Amazon review is spot on as this is a great book for adults to read as it is fun and exciting which you pass on when you read it. My daughter has few words in her vocabulary so far but what she does know is Moo and Again which she is saying every time I finish.

4.0 out of 5 stars Click clack genius! 6 Jun 2003
I love this book. I bought it for my niece, for her birthday, but might just keep it myself! The wonderful tale of the cows who type letters to the farmer, making demands on him is just charming, and the involvement of the ducks, as 'a neutral party' is highly amusing, especially the end.
The illustrations are bright and colourful, and any young child cannot fail to be won over by them.
I would recommend this book. It is well illustrated, has a lovely story, is funny and very amusing. Each time i read it i snigger, especially at the end! The story can be taken at face value by the younger readers, but does introduce some very important adult themes about impartiality, mediation and compromise. This doesnt detract from this delightful little tale at all, in fact it makes it all the better for the adult reader, who will, no doubt be reading it to their child.

5.0 out of 5 stars Click Clack Moo Review 24 Feb 2011
A Kid's Review
Brilliant book.
I am 5 3/4 and really love this book. It is brilliant because I never thought of the idea of cows typing and wanting electric blankets. It is silly but fantastic and funny. It really helped my Mum to describe her school work for industrial relations.
It is different to the kind of boring normal books . By the way I'm getting some more of this superb author's books.

5.0 out of 5 stars And this was for a kid of 5? 28 Dec 2002
I'm 45 and this book was probably the highlight of my reading over Christmas! Written for early readers, its repetitive nature will help new words become readily recognisable for those who need it, but if you are a Monty Python afficionado, or like humour that is a little off the wall, this is the shortest book for you. Giving aminals a sense of intelligence and irony gives this book an edge that you'll be unlikely to find in other pre-school hardbacks!

By M. J. Jacobs VINE VOICE
Animal farm for kids. The cows go on strike for better conditions, and the pictures show their campaign against Farmer Brown in vivid and hilarious detail. If you haven't found this one for your kids, treat yourself - and them at the same time. This is too funny to leave to the kids, though, it's very adult without losing the younger readers. I like the way the typography reflects the typing cows. And when you finish with this, remember that you must look at Giggle, Giggle, Quack! and Vote for Duck, both by the same writing/illustrating partners.

5.0 out of 5 stars a good deal 23 Jan 2003
By A Customer
My two sons, aged 2 & 4 love this book, and so do I! The older one has learned a thing or two about bargaining from the idea that Farmer Brown had to trade electric blankets for the old typewriter which had been taken over by the cows. The 2-year old has learned most of the phrases, our favorite being "no milk today" (when the cows go on strike). The illustrations are great and the language is splendid. It's not every child who has the opportunity learn what a "neutral party" is. It's repetitive for helping reading skills without being boring for the adults!

3.0 out of 5 stars Very pricey for a kindle book 7 Jun 2012
We have this book as a hard back picture book and my children who are now aged 8 and 10, used to love it when they were younger. However my reason for three stars is that I think it is very overpriced for a kindle book and can't see how, without the colourful pictures, that the book would work successfully in kindle format. Obviously the story is still the same but I personally would warn people to think carefully before spending nearly 6 on it in kindle format as I think you would be disappointed.
