A simple story with sound effects following a busy (and noisy!) morning at Apple Tree Farm. Young children will love pressing the sound buttons at the correct moments in the story to make Curly grunt, Rusty bark, Pippin neigh and many more. The sound chips are encased in a sturdy, easy-to-press panel on the right-hand side of the book. Robust tabs along the top of the pages enable children to find their favourite scenes quickly. Delightfully illustrated by Stephen Cartwright.

Great book, tabs to turn pages easily, with lots going on. Beautiful illustrations, tractors to find, little duck to look for, mice, frogs, coloured buckets, wheelbarrows - all those things that little blokes love plus great animal noises.
