    The classic American children s song, Old MacDonald Had a Farm, in which a series of animals is listed as belonging to the eponymous farmer, and their various sound words used in the refrain, is given an updated picture book treatment by talented artist Gris Grimly Many of the traditional animals you would expect to find in this song, from pigs to sheep, make an appearance, but in the surprise ending, so does a view spoiler bear hide spoiler First documented in the early twentieth centur The classic American children s song, Old MacDonald Had a Farm, in which a series of animals is listed as belonging to the eponymous farmer, and their various sound words used in the refrain, is given an updated picture book treatment by talented artist Gris Grimly Many of the traditional animals you would expect to find in this song, from pigs to sheep, make an appearance, but in the surprise ending, so does a view spoiler bear hide spoiler First documented in the early twentieth century apparently the first recorded variant was known asOhio,and was published in the collection Tommy s Tunes A Comprehensive Collection of Soldiers Songs, Marching Melodies, Rude Rhymes, and Popular Parodies in 1917 this song has become a staple of American childhood It lends itself well to adaptation and child listener involvement, as young people can be relied upon to supply the next animal in Old MacDonald s farmyard menagerie Given that this is so, the conclusion of this version feels entirely appropriate, especially as Grimly mentions, in his brief afterword, that this is an animal his own young son likes to include in the song I appreciated the narrative here, of course I sung along to myself, as I read but I also enjoyed the watercolor artwork, which depicts a sun drenched world inhabited by a quirky cast of animal characters, characters whose faces are often quite drolly expressive Recommended to Gris Grimly fans, and to anyone looking for new picture book treatments of this old song
