On the Farm

by Roland Harvey

In this sixth picture book in Roland Harvey’s hilarious and delightful holiday adventure series, Uncle Kev has a farm, where the pigs do the polishing and the cows are the happiest in all the hills. Kev invites the family for a ‘holiday’, then sets them to work. There’s lots to be done before the big Harvest Festival – and Kev is distracted, because he’s fallen in love!

and on that farm we had a holiday,
With a moo moo here and an oink oink there,
here a honk, there a quack,
everywhere a neigh neigh.
Uncle Kevin had a farm,
