Farmer Joe and the Music Show

Marvel at Farmer Joe and his amazing music show!

Down on the farm of poor old Joe, the hens won’t lay and the crops won’t grow. The cows won’t graze and the pigs won’t feed. Can Joe work out what they need? When Joe grabs his guitar and starts strumming away, the cows start to moo, and the hens start to lay. Soon everybody’s listening to the music play! With lyrical rhyming text from award-winning poet Tony Mitton and bright-as-sunshine artwork by Guy Parker-Rees, this jumping, bouncing picture book celebrates the cheering power of music. It’s a romping tour-de-force which doesn’t miss a single step!
