Celebrated creator Gris Grimly, widely known for his gothic style illustrations, turns over a new creative leaf in his glorious interpretation of this beloved preschool anthem. Inspired by his son's love for Old MacDonald and his own family's farming history, and with stunning, sweeping watercolor illustrations, and a surprise twist ending that kids will relish, Gris brings this beloved song to glorious new life.

Young children will love reading and singing along as they join our nimble footed Farmer on his morning jaunt across the farmyard and he greets each of his farm animals and beckons them to join his parade. Little ones will delight when the parade culminates in an unexpected e twist ending as Farmer opens the big red barn doors...and GASP...there's a BEAR hidden inside!

With a moving artists' note from Gris explaining the history of this song, and his personal connection to it, this delightful retelling has all the makings of a classic.

It was fun reading OLD MACDONALD HAD A FARM to my daughter. As I read, my daughter danced because it was written like the song. It sticks to the traditional version with a funny twist at the end. It was perfect for my daughter who loves animals.

The only thing I wish was that there was more at the end. It was still a fun read and even has some old farm pictures in the back of the book along with the author's note. The pictures were fun and I'll be looking for more from this author. I really loved how the author explains the original origin of the song in his author's note along with his connection to it.

Final Verdict: I would recommend this to children who love animals and love the song "Old MacDonald Had A Farm".
