Farmer Jones' snores set off a series of hooting, oinking, neighing, and barking, until the rooster's cock-a-doodle-doo wakes him up

PreSchool-- A simple circular tale, succinctly told. Farmer Jones sleeps well each night, knowing that he can count on his trusty rooster to wake him in the morning. He doesn't know that many others play a part in his wake-up routine as well. The brief text reads like a short tall-tale, forcing readers to turn the pages in order to see the effect each animal has on the next (e.g., "the owl would hoot and. . . /wake the sleeping woodpecker"). Lorenz's large, heavy black-line cartoons with bright watercolor washes depict good-natured creatures and a cheerful old farmer, perfectly complementing the text. The resultant piece of rollicking fun is destined to become a popular storytime/laptime book that may have to be read more than once at a sitting. --Susan Scheps, Shaker Heights Public Library, OH

Farmer Jones counts on the rooster to wake him; what he doesn't know is that there's a whole Rube Goldberg series leading up to this daily event: the farmer's own snores wake an owl, whose hoot wakes a woodpecker, and so on through eight other animals concluding with the dog's bark that wakes the rooster. This entertaining, if limited, notion gets a good dose of comic energy in the New Yorker cartoonist's brash illustrations. Young listeners will be eager to chime in for the inevitable reruns.
