When Farmer Brown receives a letter requesting that he and the farm animals visit Dinkelmeyer Elementary School, he is excited: "He had not been to school in a very, very long time!" The cows, chickens, and pigs are eager as well, until Farmer Brown tells them "School is very serious," and they are not to moo, cluck, or oink, which dampens their enthusiasm. Things begin "quiet, serious, and calm" as the visitors arrive, but all bets are off when the recess bell rings: "And the pigs got oinky and holler, hoot, hollered!" A conclusion shows Duck behind the principal's desk. While the end may raise questions (was Duck the principal all along?), readers will grasp the idea that there is room at school for being serious and having fun. Ages 4–8. (July)
