KIRKUS REVIEW

 In this thematic cousin to Reeve Lindbergh's The Day the Goose Got Loose (also illustrated by Kellogg, 1990), farm animals rebel against their living conditions and move into the house, creating such chaos that the human family moves to the barn. All enjoy the change; then, bored, they decide to switch back--but not before sitting down together for Thanksgiving dinner. ``Hope you like it well done,'' say the pigs, shoveling something black and smoking from the oven. Just what it is, author and illustrator decline to specify; probably just as well, considering the nature of the cast. Kellogg's high-energy pictures are, as always, filled with figures bearing broadly comic expressions--in hilarious contrast to the poker-faced narrative. (Picture book. 6-8)
