Description: Click Clack Moo: Cows that Type—a Caldecott Honor book authored by Doreen Cronin and illustrated by Betsy Lewin with watercolor paintings—tells the story of a labor-management dispute between Farmer Brown and his resident bovines, who, upon finding an old typewriter in their barn, air their grievances. The chickens follow their lead, and a strike ensues, leaving Farmer Brown with no milk or eggs. Eventually, through the skilled mediation of a neutral duck, a compromise is reached and production resumes.
