    I really liked this book! I was not so fond at first but grew on to it. I would have liked to here from the animals at the end rather than the narrator. I have to wonder how the people never here the animals talking unless there communicating some other way. I guess we’ll never know! 🙂

    This book I’ll say personally it is the best dcf. The reason I say this is because it’s adventures and they do a lot of plaining ahead of time.

    I thought that this book was an average kids farm book, but it was really funny and crazy. I expected this book to be boring and standard kid content but I really enjoyed reading it. My favorite character was Noctua because she led the animals to sadety and she was very kind. Also I LOVE owls. I would read this book again.
