A charming series of adventures for younger readers, featuring a family of all sorts of animals that live in the farmyard behind the tumble-down barn on Mudpuddle Farm! Six fantastic stories in one volume! Whether it's Mossop the old farm cat trying to catch mice for once, instead of forty winks, Albertine the goose queen getting in a flap or Pintsize the piglet trying to fly - all the animals get involved in comic capers...not to mention Farmer Rafferty.
