It is suppertime on the farm. The animals are very hungry. But where is Farmer Jones? The cow jangles her bell. “Moo, moo,” says the cow. “I am very hungry.” But where is Farmer Jones? Published 50 years ago, this simple, satisfying story is illustrated in Richard Scarry’s early, more painterly style.

Farmer Jones' animals are hungry for supper, but he is still working in the field. Each animal makes their respective sound as they wonder "where is Farmer Jones?" Wonderful for young children to introduce them to animal sounds. The Richard Scarry illustrations are very different from his

"Busytown" artwork, and provide an interesting contrast for children to think about.

A Little Golden Book from 1970 with early Richard Scarry illustrations different from his later outline style of drawing. The repetitive format with animal sounds repeated when the farm animals are fed allows the listener to participate.
