Old MacDonald Had a Farm by Gris Grimly - OPTIONAL

Grimly, Gris Old MacDonald Had a Farm.  PICTURE BOOK.  Orchard Books (Scholastic), 2017.  $18. 9781338112436

 Farmer MacDonald has his farm with the pigs, sheep, chickens, and such.  But in the barn there is a surprise!

Grimly attacks the subject with his characteristic dark edges.  The animals are quirky; the only thing I don’t like was the lack of centers on MacDonald’s eyes – that upped the creep factor for me, though I am not sure children will actually notice.  If you’d like a slightly different version of the traditional song, this is a definite winner.
