Synopsis

Farmer Joe and the Music Show by Tony Mitton

Get ready for the catchiest, finger-tappiest, thigh-slappiest rhyme yet! Can Farmer Joe find a way to bring happiness and harmony back to his farm through the power of music? Of course he can! His guitar tune is so catchy that new friends can't help but join in with the irresistible beat. Soon, a whole band is creating a sound so incredible that ALL the animals join in with the joyful jig! An amazingly illustrated, fantastically written book from this talented twosome that is bound to bring a happy glow to your heart and a bounce to your step. Farmer Joe is a delight read aloud and is a book that cries out to be shared.

About the Author

Tony Mitton

Tony Mitton was born in 1951 in North Africa, the son of a soldier. Until he was 9 he lived mostly in Africa, Germany and Hong Kong. He went to state boarding school in Suffolk and went on to do an English Literature degree at Cambridge University. He then trained to be an English teacher before making the switch to primary school teaching.

Tony worked as a primary school teacher between the ages of 25 to 49, but for the last 13 years of that period he taught part-time. During that period he began to spend 2 or 3 days a week working at his writing, and wrote poems and stories for school reading books and also for trade market books. He now writes full-time and visits lots of schools, libraries and events to talk about his work.

He lives in a small house in the middle of Cambridge with his wife and two children, and a cat called Tiggy, who is definitely one of the family. Tony likes Cambridge but he and his wife often wish they'd settled somewhere where there are better places for walking, like cliffs and hills with good views of the landscape.
