The horse is in the pigpen ... the pigs are in the chicken coop ... and you'll never guess where the chickens are!Heeey, Ma!
Something very strange is happening on this little farm. None of the animals are where they belong! The only person who can sort it all out is Ma -- but Ma is terribly busy. What will the animals and one puzzled little girl do if Ma never has time to get everything back the way it's supposed to be?
The author-illustrator team who created The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything will charm readers with a playful text that begs to be read aloud and delightfully slapstick illustrations of one discombobulated farmyard.

Linda Williams is the director of a child development center. The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything is her first book for children.
Megan Lloyd has illustrated more than forty books for children, including The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything by Linda Williams, Thanksgiving at the Tappletons' by Eileen Spinelli, and The Mixed-Up Rooster by Pamela Duncan Edwards. She lives with her husband on a farm in Pennsylvania, where she raises sheep, chickens, and cows. Some of the rabbits from her vegetable garden have even been kind enough to allow Ms. Lloyd to sketch them as models for this book.From School Library Journal:
reSchool-Grade 1-Welcome to a farm where all of the animals are not where they are supposed to be. The story begins with one displaced horse rolling in mud like a hog. As the farmer's daughter discovers one disaster after another, she asks her mother for help, with a yell of "Heeey, Ma." Whether mom is talking on the phone or darning socks, she just does not have time to deal with the mess today. So each time, she tells her daughter to tell someone else about the situation. Pretty soon, a cow decides to take up residence in the house, and Ma finally takes notice. Everything seems to be in order, until the little girl climbs into bed for a last-page surprise. Each mixed-up situation is told in rhyming stanzas with a predictable beat, rhyme, and conclusion. Sometimes, it all seems a little forced, but youngsters will be caught up by the flow of the text. The oil illustrations are vibrant and full of motion. There is a lot of action on these spreads, and very little text, which should keep the attention of listeners. This book begs to be read aloud, as almost every stanza is in dialogue with a singsong rhythm. A funny and attractive addition to any library.
