KIRKUS REVIEW

 Huge, spread-covering portraits of smiling farm animals greet viewers in this fervent tribute from a new picture-book artist. ``I love Jock, my dog,'' McDonnell declares. ``I love the ducks waddling to the water. I love...the turkey strutting around the yard...I hope they love me.'' The minimal text, printed in big type, sounds a single note that verges on monotony, but the animals' colors and frisky postures create plenty of visual exuberance. (Picture book. 2-6)
