Inhaltsangabe: There's a farm that I know Unlike any other farm As the sun goes down The air gets warm And the birds wake up And the wildflowers bloom And the sheep jitterbug Under a round rolling moon. One hot summer night, two young boys wake from their sleep to the sound of hoots and howls--what's going on? Looking out their window, they discover that "the joint is jumping"! It may be time to sleep everywhere else, but on this Martha's Vineyard farm all the animals and vegetation come out for a nighttime celebration. The boys are invited to join in, as the midnight choir is about to begin. The tulip conductor tries to get down to work, but the rest of the crowd is going berserk! Canteloupes are laughing, and onions are doing a jig, while an old apple tree plays a driftwood guitar and the hogs chase the pigs. Eventually the morning arrives, though, and the fun is over for the night. But not for long...
Vom Verlag: Late one summer night, twin boys wake to the sound of hoots and howls. Peering out their window they see a strange sight -- it may be time to sleep everywhere else, but on this Martha's Vineyard farm all of the animals and vegetables are just waking up and putting on thier clothes! A field mouse invites the boys to join in the midnight celebration, and they find themsleves caught up in a very different kind of nocturnal adventure.
Carly Simon's rollicking, rhythmic text is a delight to read aloud. Together with David Delamare's dreamlike illustrations it creates an imaginative fantasy that will capitivate readers.
