I’ve been looking for a copy of the Caldecott Honor book Click, Clack, Moo: Cows that Type (by Doris Cronin, illustrated by Betsy Lewin) for my picture book collection for a couple of years now. It’s been elusive, and I was beginning to think I would have to get it full price so I didn’t count on finding this wonderful Click, Clack, Moo: A Book and Playset for only P85 at my favorite bargain book haunt.
Housed in a red barn is a board book of Click, Clack Moo, which tells the hilarious story of disgruntled cows who learn to use a typewriter to express their grievances in a series of notes addressed to Farmer Brown.
Here’s a look inside the book:
I really love the whimsical illustrations, and appreciate the artist’s note at the end of the book:
I’m so glad I didn’t pass up on this — the book’s fantastic, and the bag with all the play pieces was still sealed, and everything was intact! The playset is adorable, and I foresee many hours of fun reading when young kids come to visit. Heck, I’m even having fun with it all alone!
Click, Clack, Moo: A Book and Playset, 5/5 stars
Book #115 for 2010
