Click, Clack, Moo Cows That Type by Doreen Cronin
“Farmer Brown has a problem. His cows like to type. All day long he hears click, clack, moo.” He can’t believe his ears – how can cows type! “Clickety, clack, moo.” He can’t believe his eyes when the cows leave a typed letter demanding electric blankets.
When Farmer Brown leaves another note. “Sorry. We’re closed. Mo milk today.” The farmer’s problems escalate when the electric blankets and refuse to lay eggs. Duck, being neutral takes an ultimatum from Farmer Brown to the cows. After an emergency meeting, the cows agree to exchange the typewriter for the blankets. This is agreeable to the farmer who waits for the duck to return the machine. The next day Farmer Brown gets a note from the ducks demanding a diving board for their pond!
