The Gophers in Farmer Burrows' Field


Selected as one of CCBC's Best Books for Kids and Teens 2011!

From then on, the cows, chickens and even the tractors are stacked high into the sky, one on top of the other. This proves to be not only a strange sight to see, but a tricky situation for Farmer Burrows. Find out how Farmer Burrows makes the most of this most unusual gopher problem.
