Random House, Inc.
A NEW YORK TIMES best-selling author and a Caldecott Honor-winning illustrator evoke life on a farm in a simple, lyrical text and boldly expressive images.

From the bull to the barn cat to the wild bunny, the farmyard bustles with life. The rooster crows, the rams clash, the bees buzz, and over there in the garden, a snake — silent and alone — winds and watches. David Elliott’s graceful, simple verse and Holly Meade’s exquisite woodcut and watercolor illustrations capture a world that is at once timeless yet disappearing from view — the world of the family farm.

Baker & Taylor
Simple verse and beautiful woodcut and watercolor illustrations combine to capture a busy family farm that is teeming with life, from a crowing rooster to buzzing bees. 40,000 first printing.
