The Lovereading4Kids comment

This is a wonderful new edition of a Ruth Brown classic, in which a chain reaction is set off when a farmer sneezes! The farmer is snoozing on the hay in his barn, surrounded by his dozy animals, when the fly buzzing about lands on his nose! Of course he sneezes, which sets off a long chain of consequences, until finally the terrified donkey panics! It has been compared to the traditional rhyme, The House That Jack Built, and has the same satisfying cause and result domino effect!

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to
