Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type
The animals on Farmer Brown’s farm have had enough! They work all day to provide milk and eggs, but when their request for electric blankets to warm the drafty barn is ignored, action must be taken. Join the Cows, Hen, and Duck – and their trusty typewriter – as they engage in peaceful protest to improve their working conditions.
Based on the popular bestseller, Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type
