School Library Journal Review

K-Gr 3-In this hilarious sequel (S&S, 2002) to Doreen Cronin's Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type (S&S, 2000), Farmer Brown takes a vacation leaving his brother Bob to take care of the animals, and viewers learn that livestock can write as well as type. Bob's shirt, tie, and briefcase all belie the fact that he is totally out of his element. An anxious Farmer Brown leaves him with the warning, "Keep an eye on duck. He's trouble." And sure enough, the cunning bird doesn't have to think twice when he sees the farmer drop his pencil. Bob may not notice him writing furiously, pencil in beak, but viewers surely will. After he "fixes" the instructions, Tuesday night is pizza night in the barn; Wednesday is bath day for the pigs; and Thursday is movie night "-the cows' turn to pick." Children will delight at the pigs luxuriating in a bubble bath and sunning themselves on Farmer Brown's best towels. When he calls to make sure Bob has fed the animals "Like I wrote in the note" and tended the pigs, his brother assures him that "It's all taken care of." When he asks if he's keeping an eye on duck, a close-up reveals the mischievous fowl sharpening his pencil. Life is ducky as the animals enjoy The Sound of Moosic, but one slip and the party's over. The hillbilly music and down-home narration by country singer Randy Travis is the perfect match for Betsy Lewin's fun-filled cartoon illustrations. Kids will "quack" up when they watch this clever barnyard romp. The video's producers, Paul R. Gagne and Melissa Reilly, won the 2004 Andrew Carnegie medal for Excellence in Children's Video.-Barbara Auerbach, New York City Public Schools (c) Copyright 2010.
