Contributor Bio(s): In 1942, the launch of Little Golden Books revolutionized children’s book publishing by making high-quality picture books available at affordable prices. More than 60 years later, many of the original Golden Book titles are still wildly popular, with The Poky Little Puppy topping the list of ten bestselling children’s books of all time. Golden Books’ backlist is teeming with classics such as Dorothy Kunhardt’s Pat the Bunny, and features the stories and artwork of children’s book legends Mary Blair, Margaret Wise Brown, Richard Scarry, Eloise Wilkins, Garth Williams, and many more. Today, the Golden Books imprint includes an array of storybooks, novelty books, and coloring and activity books featuring all of the most popular licenses, including Disney, Nickelodeon, Barbie, Thomas & Friends, The Cat in the Hat, Sesame Street, Marvel Super Heroes, and DC Super Friends. Golden Books continues to reissue the best of its backlist in a variety of formats, including ebooks and apps, as well as bringing out brand-new books in these evolving new formats.

Anne Kennedy has been illustrating professionally for more than 30 years. Her titles include the popular Little Golden Books The Hug Book, Where Do Giggles Come From?, Old MacDonald Had a Farm, and I'm Not Sleepy.

Reviewed by Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 2013 Fall)
This song follows the traditional format with each verse highlighting a farm animal and its sound. The humorous cartoon illustrations, however, add a silly story line: the animals become progressively more rambunctious and Old MacDonald looks more and more unsettled by their behavior. Finally everyone invades the farmer's bedroom to serenade their friend. A musical score is appended.
