A city boy making a happy adjustment to a farm is the subject of this pleasant book. Tommy T. loves pictures of the country, but when he goes to visit his uncle he finds that the peaceful looking animals have a certain fierceness:- the rooster crows and flaps his wings; the goat lowers his head and prances; the cows wont let him milk them; the geese hiss; and he falls into the pigpen. But by the second day he's quite the country boy. The author's pictures in the Lois Lenski tradition -- clear and simple and with shoe-button faces, such as children love. Third grade readers could read the clear type and well-chosen vocabulary.
