    Ok. I liked Punk Farm. I thought it was really funny, and very creative. I read this book with great gusto, performing the song in the book like a punk band would, like I thought the author intended it to be read. I was rocking out, screeching, making instrument sounds, just going nuts with the text, because it's about a rock and roll band called Punk Farm performing a hit song to a sold out barn! I mean, come on, you have to do a concert when you read this book, and it was *fun* to read! I got Ok. I liked Punk Farm. I thought it was really funny, and very creative.

I mean, come on, you have to do a concert when you read this book, and it was *fun* to read! I got to the end of the set, bellowed out the ending, "THANK YOU, WISCONSIN," and grinning from ear to ear, I turned around and looked at the kids sitting the back seat of the car. I was expecting to hear an enthusiastic "ENCORE," or at least light applause. Chirp, chirp, chirp.... Yeah, the spotlight can dazzle you. I looked at my nephew and he was looking back at me like my butter had slid right off my biscuit. His cookie was in his left hand, and his arm was raised part way to his mouth, which was hanging open, but that cookie was frozen en route to its destination. I looked over at my niece and she stared back at me wide-eyed for about 10 seconds. Then she said, "Uh, that wasn't a true story, was it?" I just busted out laughing, and I said to the kids, "You guys think that Auntie's lost her marbles, don't you?" My nephew said, "Yeah. That was really weird," and my niece just laughed at me. Ok, so musical performance is best left to the professionals. Unfortunately, I think that my interpretation of Punk Farm probably ruined the story for the kids. I don't know if there's really much actual story there to begin with (it's mostly just Old MacDonald Had a Farm), but the idea is fun, and in the right hands this could probably be something well liked by a kid (music teachers, give it a try--you could probably come up with something great and fun). I promise that my niece and nephew will never forget this book, but I doubt they'll ever want it to fall into my hands again. I just can't fairly rate Punk Farm because the kids' reactions were based on my singing performance. And no book should ever suffer the rating my singing warrants.

    Jarrett J. Krosoczka, Punk Farm (Knopf, 2005) Amusing kids' book, if far slighter than most of those I've seen in the past few years. Basically a lot of setup for a rocked-out rendition of “Old MacDonald Had a Farm” (much more amusing at the book's website, punkfarm.com, than it is in print). In my estimation, the young the child, the better, on this one, and it'll require a reader who's good at acting out sounds.

    This book is about regular farm animals but when their farmer goes to sleep they turn into rock stars. I like this book because of it's funny plot animals turn to rock stars by night they seem normal then tons of animals come to see them perform. I would recommend this to kids who like a little make believe story its fun for kids imagination.

    What happens when a group of farm animal friends start a band in the barn? Punk rock heaven and a farm full of happy animals, that's what. I loved the illustrations and the attention to detail. Kids will love seeing all their favorite farm animals rocking away, especially during the salute to Old MacDonald. Perfect for this year's summer library program theme Libraries Rock.

    Punk Farm is almost too fun for words. Almost. It would be awful to say nothing about this one. To just assume that you know about this one. Some may already love it, may already have it memorized even... but if I can introduce at least one or two people to the book--that wouldn't have known about it otherwise--I can walk away with a sense of satisfaction. Farmer Joe may be your typical farmer. But his animals are far from the ordinary. These are animals that know how to rock and roll. Boy, these Punk Farm is almost too fun for words. Almost.

Farmer Joe may be your typical farmer. But his animals are far from the ordinary. These are animals that know how to rock and roll. Boy, these animals know how to work a crowd! Pig plays electric guitar; goat plays his bass guitar; cow's on drums; chicken's on keyboards; and the leader of the band? The star of the show? The sheep, who's the vocal genius of the bunch. Can you guess which song they're rockin' this time? If you guessed Old MacDonald....you're right! You'll probably have to read this one yourself to see just how fun it is. But it's a party of a book.

    When the farmer is away...the animals will play...in their rock 'n' roll band, yo! Piggy on electric guitar, Cow on the drums, rooster on the keyboard, goat on the base, and sheep on the vocals. Old McDonald in rock'ed-out version on punk farm in ol' Wisconsin.

    When the farmer goes to bed, the animals break out their instruments for an all night jam session. I loved the record album book cover design and the individual personalities of each performer expressed through the illustrations.

    Farmer Joe goes to bed after a long day of work, but it's time for the barnyard animals to put on the rock show of their lives! I read this to three kindergarten classes today and got them cracking up every. Single. Time. Singing the musical part in screamo/metal fashion while wearing a bright neon-blue wig and purple lipstick is the key. Will it kill your voice? Yes. I've had a scratchy throat the rest of the day. Was it worth it?

It's seriously that good. THANK YOU WISCONSIN!

    Young children will have an awesome time rocking on along with the punk rock farm animals in this fun picture book. During the day, Farmer Joe runs a typical barnyard. But when nighttime comes and Farmer Joe goes to bed, the barn becomes an awesome punk rock scene with the farm animals tuning up their instruments, plugging in the amplifier, and putting on a great show!

    Maybe not the most interesting book, but a silly one that kids will love to groove out to. Farmer Joe leaves his animals one night to go home and go to bed. The animals were just preparing for thier night. They had to get ready for their show...in a rock concert. What did they sing??? Why Old MacDonald Has a Farm, of course! There isn't too much plot, but you don't need one. It's a silly story and interesting spin on a classic.

    At night, when Farmer Joe goes to bed, the Punk Farm band puts on a rocking good show. Yet another addition to the rock-and-roll themed storytime I did during the 2018 "Libraries Rock" Summer Reading Program. The adults loved this one - the horse acting as a bouncer at the barn door was a definite favorite - but I feel like the kids lost interest around the third verse of Old MacDonald. Also, my voice was so sore from screaming it out, hard rock style. Still, a cute story. Got some laughs.

    The class enjoyed this book. It is a regular day on the farm (or so the farmer thinks). After the farmer goes to his house for the night, the animals come out for a concert... The kids loved singing along with the song.

    Farmer Joe heads to bed as the animals wait for him to fall asleep. When that happens, the animals get ready to put on a show. Great read-aloud as the animals come into concert. There they rock out - to "Old MacDonald Had a Farm." I also love the poster wall, scrapbook endpapers with a note from Punk Farm band and list of who plays what, photos, and ticket stubs flyers. Such a fun book!

    Imagine, if you will, some farm animals with attitudes and musical talent. The hard-working farmer goes to bed at night. The animals would be smart too, as well, but instead, they fit in one last practice then start letting their barnyard friends into the barn for a good old fashioned rock concert. They'll pay for it the next morning, as they don't get any sleep and the farmer's ready for another day of work, but such is the life of a rock star. I may be slightly partial to Punk Farm.

They'll pay for it the next morning, as they don't get any sleep and the farmer's ready for another day of work, but such is the life of a rock star. I may be slightly partial to Punk Farm. I'm a children's librarian and I read it for the first time just over 6 years ago to a crowd of kids who came out for a summer reading storytime. It was my very first storytime and I've since become the children's librarian. My regulars know this is one of my favorites and parents come back with stories about how kids insisted on taking extra good care of it because it was "Miss Erin's favorite". I'm also one of those Punk Farm performers who goes all out... dresses up "rockstar", put on every blingy ring and rocker shades, blow up the inflatable guitar. [I admit, I read the goat as if he'd been eating some "magical brownies".] You just have to embrace it; have fun with it. So yeah, slightly biased. But the kids love it. They start singing along, and no matter this is not your mama's version of Old MacDonald, they don't care and they think the differences like "Ray roo here and ba beep there" are hysterical. There's humor for the adults, too. (Thank you, Wisconsin!) And I just love Jarrett's illustrations. I've bought every book he's made. Be sure to check out the PF "Old MacDonald" mp3 available online, and it's also in the works to be an animated film! Oh, and there's a sequel... another childhood favorite is given the PF treatment in Punk Farm on Tour!

The idea is that the farm animals are normal during the night, but they rock out for the whole farm at night, playing Old McDonald in punk form. From School Library Journal Kindergarten-Grade 2-After Farmer Joe heads to bed, Cow, Goat, Pig, Sheep, and Chicken pull out their instruments and electronic equipment, don their shades, and transform themselves into the rock band Punk Farm. Animals line up outside the barn to buy tickets, then settle in for a rousing show featuring a way-out version of "Old MacDonald Had a Farm," with each musician doing a solo. At sunrise, a none-the-wiser Farmer Joe finds his sound-asleep livestock not quite ready for "a big day of work." Single- and double-page cartoon-style paintings combine muddy and bold colors to contrast the earthy farm setting with the energy, edginess, and excitement of the concert. Print, mostly white drop-out, is used effectively, juxtaposing traditional block style for the narrative with a larger, more graphic layout of the same typeface to suggest the distinctive musical sound. The eye-popping orange and purple front cover sets the scene and contrasts with the muted blues, browns, and greens of the back cover depicting the fabulous five in the barnyard, post-event. The fun is carried onto the endpapers, which feature a montage of posters, torn tickets, publicity "photos" of the band, and scrawled notebook pages. Quite a romp

    This book about a group of farm animals that secretly performs as a punk band when Farmer Joe goes to bed is a really high-energy and fun read. The digital acrylic illustrations are incredibly lively, and the story is great for both kids and adults--kids will love the rousing rendition of Old MacDonald, while adults will love the tongue-in-cheek nature of the punk rock additions to the song. It also might be a good conversation starter for kids about what people do when they are not at work.
