Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type

Adapted by James E. Grote

Music by George Howe |  Lyrics by James E. Grote and George Howe


Farmer Brown has big trouble.  The animals on his farm want electric blankets in the barn.  When he refuses, the chickens and cows join forces in peaceful protest: No blankets = no milk, no eggs! With the help of their trusty typewriter, the animals and Farmer Brown work things out in this hilarious “moo-sical” based on the Caldecott Honor Book that has become a modern classic of children’s literature.
