Holly Berry has taken the best-known version of the nursery song and given it her own unique reinterpretation. In this version, Old MacDonald forms a band, so the animals not only oink, meow, moo, cluck, quack, bow wow, and baa, but they also play musical instruments in one raucous hoedown. Full color.

Holly Berryas gorgeous illustrations have brought many picture books to life. She lives in Waldoboro, Maine.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 1-After Old MacDonald finishes bringing in the crops, he assembles his animals for a harvest hoedown. As each animal is named in a verse of the familiar song, the farmer provides it with a musical instrument. The action culminates in a jamboree that shakes the barn to the rafters. Although not as action-packed as Tracey Campbell Pearson's rendition of the song (Dial, 1984), Berry's illustrations still feature plenty of activity. Children will enjoy tracking the antics of various animals, including a pesky bee and spider, from one double-page spread to the next. The flat perspective in the framed scenes bring to mind old-fashioned quilts. All of the watercolor-and-pencil illustrations exhibit folk-art characteristics. Notes about the song's origin and variations and a simple piano arrangement complete an attractive volume with appeal for young readers and singers.
