No doubt you have already enjoyed some of the other five picture books in this award winning, humorous barnyard series (Duck for President, Giggle, Giggle, Quack, Thump, Quack, Moo, etc.), so naturally you'll want to get a copy of this Halloween treat.

Farmer Brown is not a big fan of Halloween. In fact, he rather dislikes it, so on October 31st he sets a bowl of candy on his front porch, places a Do Not Disturb sign on his door and goes to bed.

But out in the barn the animals are preparing for a big party. Then Farmer Brown hears a mysterious sound on his porch. What's that? He checks his locks and peeks out the window. There's a dark creature standing out there beneath the trees. Oh no! How scary!

'He hears the crunch, crunch, crunching of leafy footsteps heading toward the house. There is a creak, creak creaking on the old boards of the front porch. Then a tap, tap, tapping on the front door.'

What's going on here? Good question, but I'm not telling! You'll have to read this delightful picture book to see what has disturbed Farmer Brown's sleep.

With lots of fun sound effects which the young readers can supply, the books in this series have already become children's literature classics. This latest seasonal addition will have your child quack, quacking and tap, tapping his or her way through the story as you read it aloud.
