When Farmer Joe packs up for the National Tractor Society Conference in Reno, Punk Farm gears up for their first road trip, hot on the hooves of their previous successful concert. But Cow, Chicken, Goat, Pig and Sheep need a new “killer” song. As they head off in the newly painted, newly repaired Rock Van, a series of road mishaps (rain, flat tires, van breakdown) inspire their music. From Maine to Florida to Colorado, they perform renditions of “Wheels on the Bus:” As funny as the first, this sequel is a clever spoof that will have kids giggling and singing along. The acrylic illustrations of the shades-sporting animals—a kind of barnyard Blues Brothers—add their own brand of humor to the text. Rock on Punk Farm! Where to next?
