Said the Cow wonder what is making strange noises on the barn's roof, but only Crow has the chutzpah to find out, in this storybook for nearly independent readers.

The best of Oppenheim's three new entries in the Bank Street Ready-to-Read series: on ``Level 2,'' a reader that creatively combines devices like animal voices and repetitions of words in amusingly varied phrases in a tale about animals frightened by mysterious thumps on their barn roof. ```What was that?' mewed Cat. `I don't know,' cawed Crow. `It's up there,' whinnied Mare.'' An owl hoots, the wind whistles, and the animals nervously imagine ghosts while Sheep baas, ```Go back to sleep' '' and they try vainly to get one of their number to investigate (`` `Not my Job!' grunted Hog''). The solution to the mystery isn't scary after all, but it's satisfyingly funny. Demarest's wide-eyed, freely rendered animal caricatures make the transition from spooky to comical with perfect aplomb. Also available: Row, Row, Row Your Boat (Level 1, ISBN: 0-553-09498- X), a survey of water craft with sometimes awkward variations on the well-known verse; The Christmas Witch (Level 3, ISBN: 0-553- 09392-4), a retelling of the Italian folktale about Befana.
