Reeve Lindbergh, the author of several books for children, lives in Bartlet, Vermont.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 3-A man's inexperienced attempts to build, furnish, and manage a farm lead to all kinds of disasters: a roof peppered with holes, plumbing that goes askew, wiring that nearly electrocutes the cat, a baby's cradle that only rocks to one side, etc. In the end, the neighbors and animals join the family in letting the man know that he is appreciated, despite his ineptitude. This far-fetched story, told in rhyme, is illustrated with lively, detailed, pen-and-watercolor paintings that carry out the absurdity. The book's broad, tall-tale humor and attractive art will appeal to all those "just learning how" ...to read, to write, to experiment.
