Bright Barnyard by Dahlov Ipcar


Bright Barnyard by Dahlov Ipcar

A young boy scatters golden kernels of corn to feed the birds of the barnyard, and watches in delight as the birds of the farm parade before him to get to their meal. From fat speckled hens, to drakes with black velvet heads, even his runaway white rabbits, they all join the feasting throng. The little calico cat watches the birds with hunger and fierce longing, but she knows the birds are off limits. The shifty brown rats she spies, however, are fair game!
