What's more fun than a clowder of cats, a rafter of turkeys, a swarm of bees, or a pack of dogs? Herd of Cows! Flock of Sheep! --the latest word play from the king of language arts books, Rick Walton.
After bringing in his corn, potatoes, beans, and tomatoes before a rainstorm, Farmer Bob decides to settle down for a good night's rest. While he snoozes away, the river rises high enough to set his bed afloat down the river. This sends the animals into a panic--a drove of pigs outlines a plan, a colony of beavers races to chew down trees, a school of fish tries to create a dam, and so forth. Will Farmer Bob be rescued by a nest of snakes and a herd of horses? It's a barnyard adventure that will leave bands of children begging for more.
