One morning, the farm animals wake up to find something strange is going on. Sheep are barking, ducks are neighing - no one knows quite what they're saying! Find out why in this fantastic farmyard fiasco and see who gets his comeuppance in the end! Wonderfully rustic illustrations are complimented brilliantly by some rhythmic text.

And if you like Emma's books you can also read What Pet to Get and I Thought I saw a Dinosaur


Miaow Said The Cow by Emma Dodd

When the farm cat decides to cast a spell to shut up noisy Cockerel, it has a few unforeseen side-effects...mice mooing, hens oinking, even the sheep barking at Sheepdog!Cat finds it all very funny until he realizes that he is stuck with Cockerel's crow. Wise old Cow sets everything straight, and the farmyard returns to normal, except for naughty Cat. He is left with a cock-a-doodle-do and given a new job waking up the farmyard each morning.
