A barnyard struggle where the cows go on strike and the farmer is forced to negotiate.

Farmer Brown thinks it’s odd when he hears typing sounds coming from the barn. But his troubles really begin when his cows start leaving him notes. First, they demand better working conditions . . . and then they stage a strike.

Doreen Cronin’s understated text and Betsy Lewin’s expressive illustrations make the most of this hilarious situation. [Publisher’s description.]
